Drafting Powers of Appointment in InterActive Legal

Powers of Appointment are one of the most common ways of adding flexibility to an estate plan. Allowing a beneficiary to redirect trust property at death or to direct a distribution from their trust to another person during lifetime can give the beneficiary a sense of control and involvement, and can also permit revisions to an estate plan when circumstances or law changes warrant. The exercise of a power of appointment, and in some cases its mere existence, can trigger tax consequences as well, some of which may be the reason for including the power itself, and others which could be unintended.
