This CLE course will provide trusts and estates attorneys with an in-depth analysis of advanced income and estate tax planning strategies for owners of closely held businesses under current tax law and in light of proposed tax law changes. The panel will discuss techniques utilizing GRATs, sales to grantor trusts, buy-sell agreements, and ways to avoid tax issues in business succession planning and other vital items.

Description

Estate planning for owners of closely held businesses requires sophisticated expertise to avoid unintended consequences. Trusts and estates counsel must consider various tax and non-tax issues and implement strategies to transfer assets effectively to successor generations.

The death of a closely held business owner can have significant estate and gift tax consequences, which can be mitigated with lifetime and post-mortem estate planning techniques primarily for owners of interests in closely held businesses. This requires estate planners to consider various buy-sell agreements, gift and estate tax rules, GRATs and other trusts, and special considerations when using LLCs and FLPs.

Also, estate planners must manage challenges from the valuation of business interests and assets to the use of recapitalization and rules applicable to S corporations.

Listen as our panel discusses advanced income and estate tax planning strategies for owners of closely held businesses under current tax law and in light of proposed tax law changes. The panel will also offer techniques for utilizing GRATs, sales to grantor trusts, buy-sell agreements, and ways to avoid tax issues in business succession planning.
