Clients think that estate planning only applies to the very rich. In truth, there are many issues of critical concern for which the middle-income client needs to plan. This course is a must-attend for all CPAs who work with middle-income clients and are looking for ways to provide additional quality services. Updated for post-election developments relative to potential estate tax repeal, and the implications for planning.

  • Identifying inheritance and death tax states, applicable rates, and tactics that may be used to minimize them
  • Reducing the impact of ancillary administration
  • Provisions you need in a will
  • When a trust is needed for children
  • Durable powers of attorney, for financial matters and for health care
  • Asset protection strategies: upsides and downsides
  • Management of insurance: umbrella liability, disability, and life

  • Dealing with marriage and divorce
  • Titling assets effectively
  • Avoiding the loss of capital and passive losses at death
  • Elder care planning
  • The latest information on the portability of the deceased spouse’s unused exemption amount
