Course Description

Estate planers continue to emphasize trusts in their planning practices. They are being used for a wide variety of clients – not only the most wealthy, but also for a much broader part of the population. Why? Issues of financial management, asset protection, maturity concerns, matrimonial problems and tax planning can all be addressed with the use of trusts. This Course addresses why trusts are useful and necessary, and provides a survey of a wide range of trusts that are used in all aspects of planning, including simple, complex and grantor trusts, living trusts, life insurance and retirement trusts, trusts to be used in business succession planning, trusts to anticipate possible changes in the tax law, trusts for S corporation shareholders, trusts to be used in charitable planning, and special needs trusts. When they should be used by planners and clients as well as their income, gift, estate and GST tax consequences will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain a practical and up-to-date understanding of how and when planners recommend trusts as part of a life plan and part of an estate plan
  • Identify the basic trust relationships and how choices of fiduciary and beneficial interests are determined
  • Understand the many types of trusts available for planning in all types of client situations
  • Focus on which types of trusts will make sense to recommend to your clients
