Lifetime Gifting In Estate Planning: Leveraging QTIP Trusts, QPRTs, SLATs
|Date / Time:
Individuals often desire to gift assets to family members and close associates during their own lifetimes as well as through wills. However, an effective gifting plan requires specific due diligence, particularly given the shift in focus from estate tax to income tax. As such, counsel must be prepared to effectively implement tools such as trusts to accommodate clients’ goals, while reducing the overall tax burden.
One of the most exciting aspects of gift planning that works well within a dynamic environment is the spousal lifetime access trust which allows for clients to “undo” a completed gift. Counsel must carefully draft trusts to ensure they achieve the intended benefits.
Lifetime QTIP trusts are also beneficial given their ability to resolve issues with married couples whose respective estates are significantly unbalanced. QPRTs also continue to be an integral part of a client’s gifting plan. These trusts not only provide for tax-advantaged transfers of wealth, but also provide asset protection for real property.
Listen as our experienced panel provides guidance on structuring trusts for gift planning to include lifetime QTIP trusts, QPRTs and SLATs. The panelists will integrate a discussion of techniques for maximizing tax efficiency such as post-gift asset exchanges.
- Gift planning goals in a high exemption environment
- Gift planning trusts
- Income tax efficiency
- Post-gift asset exchanges
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What types of trusts should be implemented in a current gifting regime? What drafting techniques should be considered?
- What are the drafting techniques for a spousal lifetime access trust that will ensure flexibility?
- What considerations should be made when maximizing tax advantages of a gift plan?
After completing this course, you will be able to select the optimal type of trust—QTIP, QPRT and SLAT—for your client under the current high exemption taxation of gifting regime, appropriate drafting tips and techniques to ensure flexibility in an SLAT, and the key considerations for maximizing the tax advantages of a client’s gift plan.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
