Many years ago you started to put some money aside to provide a comfortable retirement. Maybe it was a pension plan, possibly a 401K plan or even an IRA. Do you have more than one of these accounts because of job or investment advisor changes? Have you gotten married since you opened your account? Have you had children, got divorced, had grandchildren or had a death in the family? Chances are one or more of these life events will apply to you. When you set your retirement account up you made a beneficiary election. Do you remember who you selected...or have a copy of the election you made? Your retirement account is just that, for retirement. However, in most cases these funds are never totally exhausted before the account owner dies so your beneficiary election is vital to proper retirement planning. Your beneficiary election will determine who inherits your retirement account, but more importantly, how and when it will be taxed to them.
If you do not participate in your employer's retirement plan, you have up until April 18, 2017 to make a traditional IRA contribution which would be fully deductible on your 2016 income tax return.

As employers move into their second year of reporting under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the IRS has extended penalty relief and the due dates for ACA information reporting. Employers with 50 or more full-time employees will now have until March 2, 2017 (instead of Jan. 31, 2017) to issue their 2016 Form 1095-B or 1095-C to their employees and covered individuals. This extension does NOT apply to the employer reporting to the IRS with Form 1094 transmittal, which will remain at February 28 (March 31 if filing electronically).
