Utilizing GST Rules to Maximum Advantage for Your Clients -Basic GST allocations to “inclusion ratios” to novel and powerful strategies
Are You Utilizing the GST Rules to Maximum Advantage for Your Clients?
With the current, high estate tax exemption, many practitioners believe “generation skipping” tax planning (keeping inherited assets out of the taxable estates of children) is no longer needed for most clients, just for very large estates.
However, the estate tax exemption could be frozen or even reduced after the 2020 election. Even if this doesn’t happen, many married couples will likely underutilize the “generation skipping tax” (“GST”) exemption because it isn’t subject to portability. And keep in mind that inherited estates may grow during a child’s lifetime because, even in moderate-sized parental estates, trusts are often being set up for children, e.g., asset protection, divorce, blood-line distribution control or income tax reasons.
The reality is, because of changes in the tax code, GST planning is appropriate in lots of estates when it wouldn’t have been not too long ago. But, this raises an important question: are you up to speed on the complicated GST rules and can you properly apply them?
