Estates and Trusts

It’s 2018:  Is there a Place for Trusts? The taxation of trusts and income earned and distributed by a trust has changed significantly over the past number of years.  One might reasonably ask … Is there a place for trusts in today’s tax plan?  This session will review the tax and non-tax reasons for having a trust as part of a plan.  It will also review issues advisors should keep in mind in dealing with existing trusts including GRE’s, non-resident beneficiaries, principal residences, allocation of income and proof of payment and the 21-year rule.
