Age 70.5 is still applicable for tax year ended 12/31/2019 (the returns we are doing now).
Age 72 doesn't take effect until the 2020 tax year (returns filed in 2021.
Only those who turn 70½ on or after Jan. 1, 2020, are subject to the new rule.
The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act) became law on December 20, 2019. The Secure Act made major changes to the RMD rules. If you reached the age of 70½ in 2019 the prior rule applies, and you must take your first RMD by April 1, 2020. If you reach age 70 ½ in 2020 or later you must take your first RMD by April 1 of the year after you reach 72.
