Large Firm Service. Small Firm Attention.
Date(s) - September 13, 2016 - September 14, 2016
Significant federal transfer tax developments have recently occurred, including the new income tax basis consistency requirements under the Service Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015, and the Internal Revenue Service’s proposed regulations under the Achieving a Better Life Experience (“ABLE”) Act. In addition, President Obama’s budget for the government’s fiscal year ending September 30, 2016 contains additional major proposals for federal transfer tax and income tax changes.
The program will review these transfer tax developments, proposed federal tax law changes and state law developments, and discuss how they may impact estate, trust and transfer income tax planning, and how they may impact the administration of decedents’ estates. Moreover, the program will review other recent developments regarding estate, trust and transfer tax and income tax planning.
