Estate Planners today face the confluence of three developments– a dramatic economic downturn affecting asset values, historically low interest rates, and an election that could materially change the Internal Revenue Code – that have created a unique planning environment.


This fast-paced and interactive presentation will address the following topics:


  • The U.S. estate tax exclusion after December 31, 2020
  • Potential changes to the taxation of capital gains and qualified dividends
  • Gifting illiquid assets today
  • GRATs and CLATs
  • Refinancing outstanding intra-family loans
  • Purchase of non-GST exempt assets by GST exempt Trusts
  • Stretching the GST exemption
  • Early termination of Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Private Placement Life Insurance
