                            REMINDERS

Remember your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).  All taxpayers 70-1/2 years old or older must take their minimum distribution from all retirement accounts – 401(k), IRA, etc. by the end of each calendar year.  More information on RMDs:

If your spouse passed away in 2017, you can still file a joint tax return.  But if your spouse passed away in 2016 and you have no dependent children, you must file as a Single person with a significantly higher income tax.  Please consider increased withholding or Estimated Tax payments to cover a greatly increased tax bill.    Life insurance proceeds are generally not taxable, but if you receive a 1099 death benefit (Code 4), that amount is fully taxable.  Please consider increased withholding or Estimated Tax payments to cover this tax obligation.
