The requirement to make Required Minimum Distributions from your solo 401k is back for 2021.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allowed plan sponsors to suspend required minimum distributions payable in 2020. There is no similar relief for 2021.
Required minimum distributions for 2021 must be paid no later than December 31, 2021, or by April 1, 2022, for initial required minimum distributions. Also, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act changed the required beginning date to age 72 for participants who had not attained age 70-1/2 by December 31, 2019.
