While the estate and gift tax have been greatly relaxed (and the chance of near-term repeal seems real), many clients will still require estate planning services in the current year. This course examines the fundamentals of estate planning including critical concepts in marital deduction planning, credit shelter trusts, selection and powers of trustees, and titling and funding issues. The comprehensive manual provides an in-depth analysis of will provisions, checklists, flow charts, and real-life examples.

  • Uses and techniques of life insurance
  • Tools and techniques in gifting to minors, spouses, and other family members, including uniform transfers (or gifts) to minors’ accounts, education trusts, §§2503(b) and (c) trusts, and more
  • Reducing taxes by charitable giving, special credits, and estate freezing techniques
  • Use of irrevocable and revocable trusts and other will substitutes
