ENG2332. Planning with Grantor Trusts (TAX, EST)
This course will describe how grantor trusts came about, the rules used to determine if a trust is or is not a grantor trust and how to determine grantor trust status. We will address multiple issues of planning with grantor trusts – from living trusts for many clients to sophisticated planning techniques including Spousal Lifetime Access Trusts (SLATs), Grantor Retained Interest Trusts (GRATs), Qualified Personal Residence Trusts (QPRTs) and Intentionally Defective Grantor Trusts (IDGTs). The course will address the critical planning issues to be addressed in the coming months and the legislative proposals to end the favorable planning opportunities presented by grantor trusts.
