Non-Grantor Trusts (including INGs and SLANTs): Avoiding State Income Tax, Including New York City and State, and Avoiding "Source Income"
Recording and Slides are Available Here .
Using Non-Grantor Trusts, Including INGs and SLANTs, and Avoiding State Income Tax, Including New York City and State
This session will build on the prior day’s webinar on INGs and SLANTs and concentrate on state income tax issues. How do the various states tax non-grantor trusts (and where are the loopholes)? Just as importantly, how and when do states tax “source income” even for non-residents and non-resident trusts, especially for LLCs/LPs and other closely held businesses? A 50 state plus D.C. chart will be provided with links to statutes in this area.
We’ll initially tackle New York, which has specific legislation combatting incomplete gift, non-grantor trusts (INGs) and closes other loopholes, but to borrow a phrase, “if you can make state tax avoidance work there, you can make it anywhere”. We’ll cover other states as well and these important concepts:
- Increased impact of state income tax after new SALT limitations
- Differences between INGs and SLANTs and BDIT/BDOTs vis a vis state income tax
- Unique opportunity for QTIP/SLANTs to avoid state income tax on capital gain
- New York’s exempt resident trust rules
- California and New York throwback rules
- Importance of considering non-traditional trustee/advisor/protector location for nexus
- Quick overview of the state of Constitutional litigation defeating state tax overreach
- Important source income rules, including the Uniform Division of Income for Tax Purposes Act
- Source income variance among the states for sales of partnerships, LPs, LLCs and C/S corps (and why you shouldn’t trust some of the various compiled charts in this area)
- Exploiting INGs/SLANTs for QBI and SALT deductions even if there is unavoidable source income
