Format: Paperback
As an estate planning attorney with over 23 years' experience, I've had a long time to review the books in my field and discern the good from the bad, the worthwhile from the worthless. Without a doubt, Ms. Choate's exhaustive review and analysis of the IRS statutes, rules, regulations, private letter rulings, and planning ideas related to IRAs and qualified plans is THE "source" not only for myself but for 1,000s of attorneys and financial planners all across the U.S.

I anxiously await each new edition, feeling secure that now I'll be up-to-date again with the latest planning ideas, tips and techniques in this area of the tax law.

Written in a down-to-earth style but with complete footnotes and citations, Ms. Choate's book is the go-to source for my questions about: what are the basic rules governing the minimum distribution payouts from retirement plans? what special options are available to a surviving spouse? what are the rollover rules? can or should the beneficiary sign a "disclaimer"? what are the Roth IRA rules? can I leave my IRA to a charity? should I name the marital or credit shelter trust as beneficiary of my client's IRA? what are the pros and cons of doing so? what are the pitfalls of naming the family trust as IRA beneficiary? what are the IRS "trust rules" to follow when naming any kind of trust as beneficiary of a qualified plan or IRA? The list goes on and on...

If you do ANY planning or advising clients in the area of naming beneficiaries of IRAs or qualified retirement plans, you simply must have a copy of this 575-page book on your bookshelf. Well worth the modest expense!

This book is, without a doubt, the single essential reference guide for financial planning, retirement planning and estate planning professionals. While written for professionals, it is accessable to non professionals as well.

If you have a question about distributions from a qualified plan or an IRA, you will find the answer here.

Outstanding.

I'm a financial advisor. This book was recommended by IRA expert Ed Slott. Apparently, this is the book that he uses for authoritative information. Over the past eight years, I've found it to be an invaluable resource.

Just outstanding.
