Planning For Estates Under $10 Million
5:30pm Cash Bar, 6:15pm Dinner, 7:00-8:00pm Council Business and Program
With the estate tax exclusion set at over $11 million, this session will cover the non-tax reasons why our clients still need to do an estate plan. We will cover the basics of the estate/gift tax exclusion, lifetime gifting strategies, beneficiary designations, electing portability along with a comparison to conventional credit shelter trust planning. We will also discuss the use of QDOTs, the importance of beneficiary designations and other tax, fiduciary and administrative elections available to the estate/trust, including those when the estate/trust has an ownership interest in a partnership or S corporation. Finally, the session will cover various elections that the executor can make on the decedent's final income tax return.
