state planning and complex financial products are inextricably bound together.  Client retirement and estate plans often depend entirely on sophisticated financial products, including annuities, traditional and Roth IRAs, 401(k) or other defined contributed plans.  The complexities of these instruments have a number of estate and trust planning implications, including the valuation of the instruments for estate tax purposes, how their distributions are taxed for income tax purposes, and who can be designated as a beneficiary – an individual or a trust – and how.  Understanding how these and other financial products are treated for estate and income tax purposes is essential to effective planning. This program will provide you with a practical guide to estate and trust planning with financial products, including annuities, IRAs, and 401(k)s.
  • Estate planning with annuities, IRAs, 401(k)s, and other retirement financial products
  • What estate planners need to know about annuities – commercial v. charitable gift – and how they’re used
  • How annuity distributions are treated for income tax purposes – ordinary income, capital gain, return of investment
  • Valuation of annuities at death and planning implications
  • Understanding Minimum Required Distributions from IRAs and 401(k)s and their planning issues
  • Naming trusts as beneficiaries of retirement plans
  • Special issues when retirement plans own closely-held or family-held companies
  • How Section 691(c) deductions impact your planning
