Planning with Intergenerational Split-Dollar After Cahill and Morrissette
Recording and Slides are Available Here .
The Tax Court’s recent opinion in Estate of Cahill v. Commissioner and an order in Estate of Morrissette v. Commissioner strongly suggest that the Court will reject a low estate tax value for a decedent's interest in a typical intergenerational split-dollar life insurance arrangement. In their exclusive LISI Webinar, Howard Zaritsky and Brent Berselli will review the Court's analysis and discuss how to modify the structure and operation of an intergenerational split-dollar arrangement to mitigate the problems raised in these cases. Here is just some of what Howard and Brent will cover:
