Domicile Planning: Shopping and Changing – Is It Time to Get Out of Dodge?



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


There is a growing disparity among how U.S. states treat their residents. Issues of income taxation, death taxation, and asset protection vary widely from one state to another. These issues have always been a concern to clients, but with the pandemic’s challenges to crushed state budgets, the inevitability of higher state and local taxes, the current SALT limitation on deduction of state taxes in excess of $10,000, along with the political risk of higher federal taxes with the looming election of 2020, establishing domicile in the most “friendly” jurisdictions is taking on new importance for many clients.

In his exclusive LISI Webinar, Steve Siegel JD, LLM (Taxation), will address the key distinctions between domicile and residence, as well as severing ties with the state the client wishes to leave, and establishing ties with the state the client wants to call a new domicile. To quote an old favorite song in this context, “Breaking Up is Hard to Do”. In his conteant-packed webinar, Steve will address the following issues:

  • The key distinctions between domicile and residence
  • How to sever ties with the state the client is leaving
  • How to create new ties in the chosen state of domicile
  • The possible audit –the burden of proof - and the 5 key audit factors
  • Claims of Statutory Residence and state sourced income
  • Timing of the domicile change and the January 1 trap
  • The major differences among states: income and death taxes, asset protection, DAPT states, perpetuity periods, decanting and more
  • A lengthy checklist of things to do to successfully establish a change of domicile
