Inheriting annuities and IRAs


Q. I am 69 and have annuities and some IRAs. When I bought them, I assumed that I would need them when I retired. Fortunately, my luck has made it possible that I do not need to start getting these annuities at 70½. How can I save this money for my daughter to inherit without paying taxes?

A. Are the annuities qualified or nonqualified?
