Revisiting the Estate Plan ...30 Years Later
Continued from page 3
3. Uncertainty in estate tax rates and rules and economic markets is causing a growing number of couples to utilize more testamentary transfers in their estate planning.
The early part of this article addresses some of those opportunities.
4. Real property assets are generally not enjoying good times at the moment. If the answer to moving real estate in the current market is to discount the property, consider seeking tax relief in the process with an installment bargain sale to a qualified charity.
The bonus with this sort of planning is that the charity is not going to terminate the installment arrangement early and accelerate the seller’s taxa- tion. Such undesirable results are almost assumed in an individual installment arrangement in which the buyer either refinances later or resells the property.
To be “lucky” in retirement, clients need to create multiple sources that they can tap as needed through their retirement years.
Let us know if we can help. We are happy to assist in preparing gift-planning techniques and/or illustrations. Contact Christopher Kraus, vice president and gift planning officer, Baptist Health Foundation, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 786-596-6776. We look forward to bringing you the best and brightest in charitable gift-planning strategies.
