Tax court ruling and IRS rollover guidance don’t add up

first_imgby. Todd Berghuis, AscensusA recent U.S. Tax Court ruling has set a lot of heads spinning in the IRA administration world, running counter as it does to more than two decades of IRS guidance.  In the case Bobrow v. Commissioner, the Court looked at a situation where the taxpayer, Mr. Bobrow, had made two IRA rollovers within a 12-month period.  Each rollover consisted of assets distributed from a different IRA.  The Court disallowed Bobrow’s IRA rollover on the grounds that he was limited to one rollover per taxpayer per 12-month period, not one rollover per IRA.Why is this ruling drawing so much attention?  Primarily because it runs completely contrary to long-issued guidance provided by the IRS, the very agency that is now advocating this new position without any prior warning.  The ability to execute IRA rollovers on a one-per-IRA basis has been described in detail in IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs), for at least 20 years, that evidence readily available even now at the IRS’s own web site.  It is not conveyed in a mere statement, but in detailed examples provided to explain the sometimes-misunderstood rollover limitations.  The IRS’s own model IRA documents, on which millions of IRAs are based, state in their instructions “For more information on IRAs…see Pub. 590…”It is relevant to share the IRS’s own unequivocal guidance on the subject here.  Looking back to 1994, the oldest version of Publication 590 posted at the IRS web site, we find the following.  “You can take a distribution from an IRA and make a rollover contribution to another IRA only once in any one-year period.  … This rule applies separately to each IRA you own.  For  example, if you have two IRAs, IRA–1 and IRA–2, and you roll over assets of IRA–1 into a new IRA–3, you may also make a rollover from IRA–2 into IRA–3, or into any other IRA within one year after the rollover distribution from IRA–1. These are both rollovers because you have not received more than one distribution from either IRA within one year.”  The examples, now even more detailed, continue in Publication 590 up to the most current version. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Northwest Crane skids to success

first_imgThe transformer weighed 118,607 lbs (54 tonnes) and measured 22.9 ft x 8.7 ft x 12.6 ft (7 m x 2.7 m x 3.8 m). To move the component, Northwest Crane also utilised Hydra-Slide’s Hydra-Pac synchronous hydraulic power unit, oak timber mats, jacks, and other rigging gear.Jimmy McClung, project manager at Northwest Crane, said: “The site provided very limited access for the work and was sloped significantly. As such, we had to account for the variation in height in our slide track support plans. However, as always, we had to execute each stage of the job one step at a time; our first task was to receive the transformer at the site on third-party trucking equipment.”He continued: “We had to jack it up from the trailer, install the slide track, slide it 50 ft (15.2 m) to align with the pad, jack it up to remove the slide track equipment, and jack the transformer down onto the pad.”www.hydra-slide.com www.northwestcraneservice.comlast_img read more

Cricket News Front Foot No-Balls To Be Decided By Third Umpire, Not On The Field: ICC

first_imgNew Delhi: In modern day cricket, the issue of front foot no-balls has been a contentious issue with the on-field umpires missing several no-balls, be it in any format. This issue has forced the ICC to take cognizance of the matter and all this will change during the India vs West Indies Twenty20 Internationals and ODIs which will begin from December 6 onwards. In a statement released by the ICC, it said the front foot no-ball will be decided by the third umpire and not the on-field officials. The technology to call front foot no balls will be put to trial in it.The statement read, “Throughout the trial, the Third Umpire will be responsible for monitoring every ball bowled and identifying whether there has been any front foot infringement. If there has been an infringement on the front foot, the Third Umpire will communicate this to the On-Field Umpire who will subsequently call a no ball. As a result, the On-Field Umpire will not call a front foot no ball without the advice of the Third Umpire. If a late no ball call is communicated, then the On-Field Umpire will rescind a dismissal (if applicable) and call no ball. The On-Field Umpire will remain responsible for other in-game decisions in the usual way. The outcomes of the trial will be used to gauge whether the system has a beneficial impact on the accuracy of no ball decisions and whether it can be implemented while minimising disruption to the flow of the game.”The decision to make third umpire the adjudicator of front foot no balls was taken in August this year. The system was first trialled in the ODI series between England and Pakistan back in 2016. The ICC decided to test it again after its Cricket Committee recommended its use in as many limited-overs matches as possible.Recently, the IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians was poised on a knife-edge with AB de Villiers batting brilliantly. Jasprit Bumrah bowled two brilliant death overs, conceding just five runs in two overs while Lasith Malinga conceded a six in the first ball of the last over. With seven runs needed off one ball, Malinga bowled a low full toss and Shivam Dube, the batsman missed out and Mumbai Indians won the game by six runs to register their first win in this tournament.Also Read | Virat Kohli Makes BIG Announcement, Says Only One Spot Up For GrabsHowever, when the players were shaking hands, replays showed that Malinga had overstepped and this led to sharp criticism regarding the standard of umpiring from both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, the captains of both the franchises. Kohli was furious when he said, “We are playing at the IPL level. It’s not club level, the umpires should have their eyes open. That was a big no-ball. We should have done a better job with the ball after they were seven down. The last few overs were brutal for us. Bit of a mistake from me to take Bumrah on at that time. Bumrah makes a hell of a difference in any team,” Kohli said. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
