The use of trusts in 2016 will continue to undergo changes. Clients need to be informed why planning is essential in these changing times. The purpose of this course is to explore the many beneficial issues of trusts, an essential element in estate planning.

  • Dynasty trusts

  • Impact of historically low APRs on various trust arrangements
  • Special problems of estates and trusts relating to the new 3.8-percent tax on investment income and specific solutions
  • Post-election developments relative to potential estate tax repeal, and the implications for planning
