Course Description

For tax preparers and clients alike, the IRS rules for gift tax returns can be confusing. In this course, Robert Keebler provides a detailed synopsis of the rules, requirements, benefits, and potential traps involved with gifting. The course pays special attention to the marital deduction, gift splitting, adequate disclosure, the generation-skipping transfer tax, defined value and related clauses, and potential hazards.
