The 53rd Annual Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning was chock full of the usual goodies, but the advent of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 brought a bevy of new topics and discussions which render our ever-changing world of estate planning more challenging.
This presentation will address some of the key points from the Institute including Basis, Sections 199A Final Regulations, The Multiple Trust Regulations, Planning with the “bumped up” Basic Exclusion Amount, The End of the Excess Deduction on Termination, Powell vs. Commissioner, Economic Opportunity Zones - Section 1400Z, Choice of Entity, State Income Taxation of Trusts, Divorce and the 2017 Tax Act.
