Program Summary

Planning for the tax implications of transfers is an important part of estate planning. Learning how to value assets and leverage discounts is crucial when helping clients decide whether to make gifts. Tax considerations such as capital gains, estate tax, generation skipping transfer tax, and gift tax cannot be overlooked. Effective use of disclaimers is a key part of this analysis. This course will also help you understand how to ensure that your clients effectively pass assets to spouses and descendants. We will also explore ethical issues that arise when drafting Wills such as representation issues, attorney fees, confidentiality during and after your client's lifetime, data security, client communication and conflicts of interest.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

  • Valuation
