Early Termination of Trusts: Panacea or Professional Negligence?



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


In this day and age of high federal estate tax applicable exclusion amounts, many clients desire to terminate trusts that they perceive to no longer have value in their estate planning. These could be by-pass trusts, life insurance trusts or other irrevocable trusts. However, trust terminations have tax consequences. Do you know what they are?  

In their exclusive 90 minute LISI Webinar presentation, Paul Hood and Ed Morrow will methodically and carefully take you through those tax consequences, some of which might really shock you. They'll also point out where the law is unsettled in this area. If you aren’t positive of the tax consequences of trust termination, you need to attend this webinar! Best of all, Paul will cover sample documents you can use in your practice!

Here's a list of just some of the topics Paul and Ed will cover in this content-packed webinar:

  • The potential tax consequences of a simple trust termination.
  • How the role that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Cottage Savings could play in the determination of the income tax consequences.
  • Do you fully understand all of the potential income tax consequences of a decanting?
  • The Black Hole of basis, IRC Sec. 1001(e), and some creative ways around it.
  • The estate, gift  and generation-skipping transfer tax consequences of reformations, terminations and decantings
  • Review a sample CYA letter for clients who want to terminate trusts warning about the potential income tax consequences.
