American Institute of CPAs - Personal Financial Planning (PFP)

Sep 17, 2021

On September 13th, the House Ways & Means Committee released long anticipated draft legislation which could lead to major tax changes effective January 1, 2022.  In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Bob Keebler, CPA/PFS, walks you through the key areas of interest so that you can plan ahead with your clients in the event these proposals become law.  Bob discusses:

  • Increases in tax rates over certain thresholds, expansion of the NIIT, a new high-income surcharge, and modifications to 199A
  • Return of the estate and gift tax exemptions to pre-2017 levels and drastic changes in taxation of grantor trusts
  • New IRA rules, including mega IRA contribution limits and RMDs, elimination of the backdoor Roth, and more
  • What this means for clients and the future of planning strategies if the proposals become law
