The End of Estate Planning as We Know It? How the New Tax Law Changes Estate Planning for Our Clients

The year began with some political drama in Washington, as last-minute negotiations attempted to avert sending the nation over the "fiscal cliff." On January 1, Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which makes permanent many of the Bush-era tax provisions and forever changes how we approach estate planning. After this presentation you will:

  • Know the provisions of the Act that impact estate planning, trust administration and the administration of decedents' estates in 2013 and beyond
  • Understand the rules of "portability" and the risks it poses to our clients
  • Appreciate the importance of state inheritance and estate tax rules in planning
  • Be prepared to advise clients on revising existing estate plans and future plans
