Effective Estate Planning must include tax planning for avoiding, deferring and/or minimizing Estate Taxes and Gift Taxes, while at the same time structuring the Living Trust or other Estate Planning strategy to accomplish the personal and family goals of my client.
Reducing estate taxes through gifting, both charitable and non-charitable, to is integral to Estate Planning. Under current Internal Revenue rules, each person can gift up to $14,000 to each recipient annually (January to December) without incurring a gift tax. Gifts to charities provide another tax reduction tool which clients may consider.
There are many different planning strategies which a client may employ in their Estate Planning:
· Creating a marital deduction trust, also called an AB Trust
· Creating a credit shelter trust
· Creating a QTIP Trust
· Forming a family limited partnership
· Setting up an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust
· Charitable trusts
