    Product News Updates

    IRA & HSA Updates

    Wolters Kluwer is working to revise our IRA and HSA documents due to the following non-mandatory changes:

    • The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 made permanent the Qualified Charitable Distribution rule allowing an IRA owner or beneficiary age 70½ or older to have up to $100,000 per year distributed directly to a charitable organization. It also allows Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees of Small Employers (SIMPLE) IRAs to accept rollovers from other types of IRAs and from employer-sponsored retirement plans after the two-year period of participation in the SIMPLE.
    • Revenue Procedure 2016-47 authorizes the self-certification of justification for rollovers made after 60 days from the date of receipt of the distribution.
    • The Department of Labor’s final fiduciary regulation broadens its oversight, and broadens the scope of persons considered to be a fiduciary with respect to IRAs and other tax advantaged accounts.
    • IRS Notice 2016-62 provides cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) affecting dollar limitations for pension plans and other retirement-related items for tax year 2017.
    • Revenue Procedure 2016-28 provides the 2017 inflation adjusted deduction limitations for annual contributions made to a health savings account (HSA) under section 223.

    These changes will be available in the 2017.1 release and are expected on our download site as soon as the changes have been completed.

    Farm Service Agency Guaranteed Loan Program Changes

    The environmental regulations that govern Farm Service Agency (FSA) guaranteed loan programs have recently had been revised. The FSA requires lenders participating in various USDA loan programs to include specific default language in various loan documents. The FSA requires that lenders use such default language in the most recent version of the FSA-2232 Form along with the new citation to 7 C.F.R 12. The implementing regulations contained in 7 C.F.R. Part 1940, Subpart G, Exhibit M have been removed effective August 3, 2016. Lenders are required to include all security and debt instruments specific default language that prohibits using loan funds that would contribute to erosion of highly erodible land, or conversion of a wetland.

    Due to the urgency of the change, Wolters Kluwer is creating 3 temporary USDA Commercial Riders in order to comply with the revised USDA/FSA default language. The riders will be available in the 2016.3 E-Forms release. Scoped for our 2017.1 E-Forms Release are the 350 forms that need to be updated to comply with the new default language, and the temporary riders will be discontinued once those forms are updated.

    Impacted form series scoped for 2017.1 E-Forms Release: USDA-A-R (Agreement); USDA-N-R (Promissory Note); USDA-SI-R (Security Instrument)
