Exploiting the 2017 Tax Act: Creative New Federal and State Income Tax Savings Opportunities - Click to Listen to Steve's description




Recording and Slides are Available Here.



Congress rushed the 2017 Tax Act.  In doing so, they left creative estate planners multiple opportunities to exploit the income tax laws in order to save a substantial amount of federal and state income taxes.  The combination of the nearly unlimited gift tax exemption, the new income tax brackets and the IRC 199A pass-thru business deduction have opened the door for a substantial amount of federal and state income tax savings.  How do we exploit the new rules? 

Join Estate Planning Attorney Steve Oshins and he dazzles the audience with:

  • The concept of immediate gratification
     
  • Why proper planning will now get you more thank you’s than ever from your clients
     
  • Saving state and federal income taxes using NING Trusts
     
  • Saving state and federal income taxes using third-party non-grantor trusts
     
  • Why we should change most grantor trusts into non-grantor trusts
     
  • Why we might unwind installment sales to IDGTs
     
  • Splitting off extra equity from existing IDGTs with outstanding installment sales
     
  • Opportunities to sprinkle income to lower federal and state income tax brackets
     
  • Exploiting the 2017 Tax Act with multiple trusts, maybe even ten trusts for one client
     
  • A list of economic opportunities for each separate taxpayer trust
     
  • All of the eligible taxpayers to use to exploit the new IRC 199A Pass-Thru Business Rules
     
  • Using your newborn baby as an additional IRC 199A taxpayer
     
  • Exploiting decades-old tax policy to leave the gift tax alone that Congress seems to have forgotten
     
  • Decanting to exploit the new tax laws
     
  • Exploiting the IRC 199A pass-thru business opportunities with proper choice of business entity
     
  • The 28.57% Magical W-2 Formula to maximize the IRC 199A pass-thru business deduction

Six NEW 199A Cases Studies: Important Steps Advisors Need to Take When Modeling a Client's Numbers - Click to Listen to Bob's description




Recording and Slides are Available Here.



Six NEW 199A Cases Studies: Important Steps Advisors Need to Take When Modeling a Client’s Numbers

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created new Code Section 199A, which presents advisors with six tricky questions that require detailed quantitative analysis before clients can be properly advised on what to do:

  • What will a client’s pass-through deduction look like?
  • Is a particular client “better off” being a C Corporation or a pass-through entity?
  • Is a client "better off" staying as an employee or switching to independent contractor status?
  • Should Schedule C business owners switch to S corporation status and pay themselves a salary in order to claim a 199A deduction?
  • Trusts and estates can qualify for the IRC 199A deduction, but how should an advisor compute the amounts apportioned to the trust/estate and the beneficiaries? 
  • How will a contribution to a Qualified Retirement Plan reduce taxable income and how will that impact the IRC 199A deduction? 

Join Bob Keebler in his exclusive LISI webinar where he uses the case study
method to demonstrate:

    • How he calculates the 199A pass-through deduction for service and non-services businesses;
    • How he models the complex choice of entity question and whether a client is “better off” being a C Corporation or a pass-through entity;
    • How he counsels clients on whether they should remain as an employee or elect to convert to independent contractor status;
    • How he models whether Schedule C business owners should switch to S corporation status and pay themselves a salary to claim a 199A deduction;
    • How he calculates the 199A deduction when interests in pass-through entities are owned by fiduciaries such as trusts and estates; and
    • How he models making qualified retirement plan contributions that can reduce a client’s taxable income, and how that impacts the IRC 199A deduction.

Successfully Completing Form 8971 and Understanding the Underlying Basis Issues and Risks




Recording and Slides are Available Here.



The executor of any new estate required to file a Form 706 must understand the basis consistency rules. These rules and new IRS Form 8971 are an information reporting regime to maintain consistency between the values reported on an estate tax return and the income tax basis reported by beneficiaries. On the surface, the new reporting seems manageable; however, it can be quite complicated. In his exclusive LISI Webinar, Bob Keebler will discuss the many issues estate planners and administrators will need to work through to comply with the Code and protect the estate, beneficiaries, and themselves. Bob will cover the following topics:
  • Overview of the new basis consistency regulations;
  • The Zero Basis Rule: Failure to report can result in an asset having zero basis!
  • The Subsequent Filing Requirement
  • How to complete the new form including reporting:
    • Assets with IRD;
    • Assets passing to charity; and
    • Assets passing to a spouse
