2023 Social Security 8.7% increase announced. 2023 Tax Brackets are going up just over 7%. Interesting. So, if your income just matches inflation (~8-9…..%), you will be paying more in taxes.

Once again, significant changes have been announced in IRS publication:
Simply stated it seems that the RMD requirements are still there, but it looks like no excise taxes, as defined in Section 4974(b), will be applicable to Inherited RMDs for Designated Beneficiaries (DBs) not taken in 2021 and 2022. Also, if excise taxes were paid on 2021 RMDs not taken the excise tax is refundable.
So, yes there are Inherited Required Minimum Distributions, but there doesn’t seem to be any penalty or consequence for DBs not taking 2021 or 2022 Inherited RMDs.
We are working to incorporate throughout our software.
