When a Gift Is Subject to Income Tax; Beneficiary Deemed-Owned Trusts; Making Large Taxable Gifts

Webinar

This trifecta of topics, drawn from Steve Gorin’s 3rd quarter 2020 newsletter, is designed for advising clients contemplating large taxable gifts. “When a Gift Is Subject to Income Tax” explains when gifts trigger income tax, including some traps when transferring business interests.

“Beneficiary Deemed-Owned Trusts” provides an overview of irrevocable trusts where the beneficiary is deemed the owner and includes BDITs and BDOTs.

“Making Large Taxable Gifts” describes which gifts might not achieve their intended objectives if certain anti-abuse regulations are adopted and which are not subject to that risk, points out long-term consequences of using one’s entire exemption now, and reviews the interaction of these tools with basis step-up issues.
