Program Materials

This webinar will review certain estate and gift planning strategies that all advisers should be discussing with their clients to take advantage of the current market decline and low interest rates.

Description

A decline in the value of assets provides individuals with the opportunity to transfer low-valued assets out of an estate and pass tax-free appreciation to beneficiaries. Utilizing the annual gift exclusion, establishing a GRAT, creating charitable lead trusts, and converting to Roth IRAs are only a few ways to benefit from this market downturn. Although not an ideal time to sell a business, gifting a closely held business interest could provide substantial tax savings.

Understanding the many mechanisms available is vital for trust and estate advisers to ensure assets escape transfer taxes on appreciation.

Listen as Gregory L. Allison, JD, CPA/PFS, CFP®, Shareholder at Schneider Downs, details planning techniques to take advantage of the impact of the coronavirus, including utilizing trust and lifetime gifting strategies to minimize these taxes.
