AFHU GIFT CALCULATOR
Tax Law Changes for 2021 and Estate Planning with an IRA in Light of the Elimination of the “Stretch”
Inherited retirement account distributions must now be taken within 10 years and the holder can no longer stretch out the withdrawals and required tax payments on each distribution over the beneficiary’s life expectancy. Thus, the annual amounts payable to heirs who inherit the IRA will be larger and the tax costs greater.
Hebrew University is synonymous with innovation. From the frontier of nanomedicine to reinventing agriculture for our changing planet – some of today’s most prolific leaders in technology, humanities, and the sciences are here, mentoring the next generation’s inventors, policy makers, health practitioners, and scholars.
Your gift to Hebrew University is an investment in our students, our faculty, and our shared future. You can learn more about some of our foundation partners here.
