From the Desk of Jim Lange:

Dear IRA Owner,

The federal government is planning the biggest tax grab in U.S. history and not many advisers are talking about it with clients who are at risk- and that is just about all of us who have or will have more than $450,000 in an IRA or retirement plan!

Since January 2001, and to some extent even before that, the IRS has permitted beneficiaries- both children and grandchildren- to stretch distributions from inherited IRAs over their lifetime. By paying the income taxes on relatively modest annual distributions for many years, your legacy continues to grow, tax deferred.

Known as the Stretch IRA, this benefit has long been the greatest opportunity taxpayers have had to pass on their wealth to heirs relatively intact and with a minimum of estate taxes.

And now, late in the game, Congress wants to change the rules and WIPE OUT potentially one-third of your IRA within 5 years of your death!

That's right, after decades of reckless spending, Washington bureaucrats have piled up more than $19 TRILLION in debt- over $63,000 for every man, woman, and child in America. And now they want YOU to bail them out!

So a few years ago, lawmakers entertained the idea that killing the stretch IRA would be a good way to get their hands on some of the $18 trillion Americans hold in their retirement accounts.

And sure enough, the government has now officially pounded the first nail into the stretch IRA's coffin: On September 21, 2016, the Senate Committee on Finance voted 26-0 to ask Congress to kill the unlimited stretch IRA.

So if we don't make our voices heard -and NOW- a substantial portion of the wealth you've worked so hard to build your entire lifetime could disappear!
