NEW! Client Letters on Significant New Law in the SECURE 2.0 Act

Who needs to know: Individuals with retirement accounts, plan administrators, financial  and tax advisors

At the end of 2022, the SECURE 2.0 Act became law, introducing significant new rules in several key areas of the Internal Revenue Code. These include changes affecting 529 accounts, traditional and Roth IRAs, retirement plans, student loans, and conservation easements.

Checkpoint has four new client letters outlining these changes:

¶1365 Key Provisions in SECURE 2.0 Benefiting Individuals

¶1365.1 Key Small Business Provisions in SECURE 2.0

¶1365.2 Key Retirement Plan Provisions in SECURE 2.0

¶1365.3 Changes for Conservation Easements contained in SECURE 2.0

These changes present significant tax savings for certain taxpayers and open up opportunities for practitioners to contact their clients to offer services. The SECURE 2.0 Act also cracks down on syndicated conservation easement transactions by denying conservation easement deductions to pass-through entities like partnerships and S corporations, which can affect practitioners who advise on these transactions.
