  • The Secret Life of Powers of Appointment. This presentation revisits tax law and property law basics of powers of appointment and addresses some lesser-known tax and property law rules related to powers of appointment.
  • Estate Planning for GST Nonexempt Trusts. Most GST tax-related presentations, however, focus on how to ensure trusts are exempt from the GST tax whether by grandfathering or the application of GST exemption. Presentations on the GST tax, however, rarely cover how the GST tax on nonexempt trusts works. Since the GST tax was implemented in 1986, however, clients have set up thousands of trusts that are not exempt from the GST tax. This presentation describes how the GST tax applies to nonexempt trust and covers planning opportunities. Although the GST exemption has increased substantially in the last 20 years, there are lots of trusts out there with inclusion ratios of one created when the GST exemption was much smaller. Those trusts now will soon face GST tax-related issues even though the trust’s assets may be less than the current GST exemption for a living person.
  • Estate Planning for QTIP Trust Assets. Since 1981 clients have created a very large number of QTIP trusts in the name of estate tax deferral. However, all deferral comes to an end, so often estate tax-related planning is necessary for assets held in QTIP trusts. Planning of this kind, however, is considerably different than when an individual deals with estate planning for individually owned assets. Planning for assets in QTIP trusts involve considerations of fiduciary duties of the trustees to all beneficiaries as well as complicated tax issues related to how section 2044 and 2519 work. This presentation will address how these issues play out.
