Program Summary

Handling insolvent estates is challenging because the fiduciary must faithfully and impartially adhere to the terms of the Decedent’s Will and address the Decedent’s outstanding federal and state tax liabilities. This CLE will provide suggestions for how to: obtain information about a Decedent’s federal and state tax liabilities, compose a plan for administration of the insolvent estate, be aware of potential IRS challenges to estate administration expenses, and work with the IRS to resolve a Decedent’s federal tax liabilities.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Fiduciary versus tax accounting
  • Priority of payment of federal and state tax debts in relation to statutory allowances and creditor claims
  • Issues regarding how the IRS may define reasonable and necessary expenses of estate administration
  • IRS statutes of limitations and liability for filing of income tax returns
