Year-End 2022 Estate Planning

December 22, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EST

Jonathan G. Blattmachr Esq. and Martin M. Shenkman Esq.
Year End Estate Planning

Year-end tax planning for 2022 is different from prior years. Practitioners might recommend traditional annual gift planning but for some (perhaps many) clients, annual gifts may not be worthwhile.

We’ll explore the pros and cons of annual gifts and nuances such as GST implications. There is also still time for practitioners to encourage clients to retitle assets and take other steps in anticipation of the 2026 reduction in the exemption amount. Taking some steps before the end of 2022 may reduce the risks of step transaction or reciprocal trust challenges against SLATs and other planning strategies. This type of planning will be discussed based on the somewhat unique 2022 year-end tax planning environment, lessons from the Smaldino case, and other perspectives.

The speakers will also discuss the following topics:

  • Year-end planning strategies considering the proposed “clawback” regulations
  • Monitoring trust income in light of trust compressed tax rates and considering the 65-day rule
  • How to shore up valuation adjustment clauses in year-end transactions
  • Valuation issues practitioners should be concerned about (the GRAT CCA and Batty case)
  • Recission as a possible remedy for unintended 2022 transactions
  • And more.

The webinar will also discuss charitable gift planning, which has always been a common year-end practice, but recent cases emphasize the need for practitioners to caution clients to carefully comply with substantiation and other requirements.  

Join us for a summary of what your clients may need to know – and do – before the new year.
