Why You Should Attend?

This informative telephone seminar / audio webcast will give you an overview of the current gift and GST tax exemptionsand potential planning opportunities for clients who wish to make tax-free gifts before year-end.

What You Will Learn?

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (aka TRA 2010) created significant but temporary reductions in estate and gift taxes. The exclusion amount of $5,000,000 plus lower tax rates have created opportunities for individuals to transfer wealth and save thousands, or even millions of dollars in taxes—but only through December 31, 2012—absent further legislation.

Experienced practitioners Marya P. Robben, Partner, Lindquist & Vennum PLLP, Minneapolis, and Adam K. Sherman, Partner, McDermott Will & Emery LLP, Chicago, look at the status of gift and GST tax exemptions—and give a practical review of ways your client might use the increased exemptions and lower tax rates to transfer wealth while minimizing tax liabilities.

This program is a replay of a previously presented program. Questions may be submitted during the program and will be answered by email within 48 hours of the program ending. This program was originally presented on August 16, 2012.

Who Should Attend?

Trust and Estate Counsel, Wealth Managers and other legal professionals who could benefit from an overview of Gift and GST tax exemptions should attend this accredited continuing legal education program from ALI CLE.
