IRAs Part 2 - Rollovers and Transfers

IRAs Part 2 - Rollovers and Transfers

Thursday, September 16, 2021
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm Eastern

One of the most misused and abused language in the IRA World is using the words "rollover" and "transfer" interchangeably. Not only that, it is also one the most frequent mistakes financial institutions make when reporting these transactions to the IRS resulting in unnecessary bills sent to bank customers.

Rollovers and Transfers have been confusing to IRA administrators since their inception. Financial institutions think they can make up their own policies, rules and definitions on what they will call a "rollover" vs. a "transfer". That's not the way this works. The IRS has very clear definitions on the difference between these two movements of IRA money. Everyone must understand these rules so the debit side reporting matches the credit side reporting and cancels out the taxability of the transaction. It's not rocket science. It's a 3-piece puzzle with clear answers.

Topics Covered:

  • Why is it important to QUALIFY the money coming into the financial institution?
  • What are the three questions that should be verified?
  • What is the IRS definition of an IRA for rollover qualification purposes?
  • What happens if an IRA accountholder exceeds the once-per-12-month rule?
  • What are the exceptions for the 60 day time period where the customer can “self-certify” the rollover is still allowed?
  • What are the alternatives to moving money from IRA to IRA if not a “rollover”?
  • Which IRA Forms are used and how is the movement reported to the IRS?
  • When does the financial institution have to verify transactions with the other institution?
  • What’s the difference between an IRA Transfer, an IRA Rollover and a Qualified Plan Rollover?
  • Moving money from a Traditional to a Roth or QP to a Roth – Conversion vs. Rollover?
  • Most importantly…How are the transactions above reported to the IRS?
