Changes to RMD rules - Important new Development
Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for tax sheltered savings programs (i.e., IRA's, 401(k)'s etc) were suspended for 2020 due to the unpresidented drop in stock market prices in March and April, based upon a Law passed on March 27, 2020 referred to as the CARES Act. What if you had already taken distributions prior to that date? Without going through all of the details, the upshot is this. You can put all of the money you withdrew this year back into your tax sheltered savings accounts as if the distribution never occured, but you have a deadline of August 31, 2020 to do so. This will save taxes that you owe for 2020. I am calling my broker tomorrow to find out how they intend to impliment this IRS ruling.

Christopher Miller LSHS ‘66 has published a choir piece that may be of interest to all of our musically inclined classmates.
"Two American Hymns" was published by Neil A. Kjos Music. Conceived as a concert piece, but suitable also for church, "Two American Hymns" combines, literally, the familiar melodies of "How Firm a Foundation" and "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing". This treatment emphasizes the strong, rough-hewn pioneer character of the hymn tunes and with rich harmonies, explores them lyrically as well.
Copies, $1.70 each, can be ordered at Rettig Music in Lima, Ohio on Shawnee Rd, and in the Columbus, Ohio area, can be found at Stanton's Sheet Music, downtown. At the Stanton's website, you can hear the publisher's recording.
