This is a rebroadcast from March 23, 2017.
The IRS is now requiring financial institutions to correctly report those hard to value assets within an individual’s IRA. Most stocks and other traditional investments are easy to value. The price is determined by the markets or found on a bank statement. But some assets are not so easy to find a value for, and that's a problem if those assets are held in an individual retirement account or other tax-deferred retirement account.
The IRS has found that many individuals were undervaluing certain assets to avoid paying taxes so now it has been placed upon the financial institution’s shoulders to get that value correctly reported. Also, we at the financial institution need to make sure that those account holders do not enter into a prohibited transaction. Those penalties for our account holders could be very high.
