Catholic Estate Planning
Each component of a client’s estate and financial plan can embody their Catholic values, beliefs, and lifestyle. Practitioners can guide clients to write a letter of final instructions, or an “ethical will,” to their heirs. This can explain to the heirs the client’s connection with the Church, and how the Catholic concept of stewardship over assets is carried out by making a bequest in your will to complement philanthropy during lifetime. Each aspect of your client’s financial, retirement, insurance, death (dispositive scheme), and post-death (e.g., trusts for heirs) planning and documentation can be imbued, to the extent the client wishes, with Catholic values. This practical webinar will explore a range of issues.
Kaestner Case and State Income Taxation of Trusts

The Kaestner case represents an extremely important decision for all estate planners, trust officers, trustees, and advisers. Although the holding is a narrow one, it is vitally important.
Christian Estate Planning
Each component of a client’s estate and financial plan can embody their Christian values, beliefs, and lifestyle. Perhaps the simplest way to integrate Christian values into an estate plan might be for a client to add to his or her will a bequest to an organization that has been instrumental or inspirational in his or her life, or which embodies the values he or she holds dear. But there is so much more.
