Join us for a spirited discussion focusing on:

  • What planning should clients consider now?
  • What transfer tax planning might clients consider now? Does the Biden proposal effective date for deemed realization make the Van Hollen retroactive effective date less concerning?
  • How has the Biden capital gains proposal changed the possible use of CRTs in the current environment?
  • What mechanisms might be integrated into current planning to permit unwinding transfers if they unintentionally become taxable? What are some of the different views of disclaimers, recision and more?
  • How does life insurance planning change now and what should clients of even moderate wealth consider doing?
