H.R.1994 - 116th Congress (2019-2020): Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO MINORS TRUST BENEFICIARIES:

Last year, the Oneida Trust Enrollment Department noticed recipients of Minors Trust Distributions that the “2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” changed the tax brackets of the Kiddie Tax which was up to 37% and applicable to a member’s Minors Trust and Per Capita Distribution. While the Trust Enrollment Department worked on informational outreach, we have also worked with other resources within the Oneida Nation to lobby the Federal U.S. Government to remove these unfairly large taxes to Native youths.

In December 2019 the Federal U.S. Government adopted the “Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act” which had provisions repealing the Kiddie Tax brackets. Instead of applying the Kiddie Tax rates based solely on an individual’s unearned income, the rates reverted back to pre-“Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” rates, which means they apply to unearned income based on your parents’/legal guardians’ marginal income.

If you received a Minors Trust Fund Distribution in 2019, your distribution might be applicable to the SECURE Act. We strongly urge you discuss your taxes with a professional tax consultant. The Trust Enrollment Department are not tax professionals and cannot give individual tax advise.

Click the link below to read the summary of the SECURE Act provided by Congress. It may be helpful to mention the SECURE Act to your professional tax consultant when filing your taxes

OLIPP Beneficiary Designation Forms were mailed out to everyone 18+ last week in case anyone needed/wanted to update their beneficiaries. In response, we received over 300 phone calls from people checking to see who they had as beneficiaries.

Thank you to all who are taking the time to make sure their affairs are in order.

Since there have been over 300 phone calls, that also means, we are still playing catch up to voicemails and missed calls. We have a list of call back numbers, and we will return your call as soon as we can.

This year we are giving Minors Trust Beneficiaries more control on the amount of their Minors Trust Fund they wish to receive and the amount they wish to voluntarily withhold for Federal Income Tax.

If you wish to receive only a portion of your Minors Trust Fund, under Section 2 of the Claim/Deferral Form, check the box that reads "I choose to receive ___% of my Minors Trust Fund", and then write the percentage amount you wish to receive.

If you wish to voluntarily withhold an amount for Federal Income Taxes, under Section 3, check the box that reads, "YES, withhold __% of my payment for federal income taxes", and then write the percentage amount you wish to withhold.

Please write whole numbers only! Any decimals will be rounded to the nearest whole number. If you check a box but do not write in a percentage, we will assume 0%
