IRS Notice 2020-51 extends the deadline to return any unwanted 2020 required minimum distributions (RMDs) to August 31, 2020. For those who don’t need to draw on their retirement accounts, skipping this year’s distribution could lead to a lower tax bill.

In addition to important provisions supporting individuals and businesses during this challenging period, the recently passed CARES Act also suspends required minimum distributions (RMDs) for 2020.
