Can a CRT Stretch an Inherited IRA?

When: November 15, 2021

Where: Zoom

The SECURE Act generally eliminated the “stretch IRA,” whereby a beneficiary of an inherited IRA could stretch distributions over that beneficiary’s remaining life expectancy.  Can naming a tax-exempt charitable remainder unitrust as the beneficiary of a retirement account provide comparable tax benefits? What are the rules, the traps, and the solutions?
