What You Will Learn

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (aka TRA 2010) created significant but temporary reductions in estate and gift taxes. The exclusion amount of $5,000,000 plus lower tax rates have created opportunities for individuals to transfer wealth and save thousands, or even millions of dollars in taxes—but only through December 31, 2012—absent further legislation.


Join experienced practitioners Marya P. Robben, Partner, Lindquist & Vennum PLLP, Minneapolis, and Adam K. Sherman, Partner, McDermott Will & Emery LLP, Chicago, for a look at the current status of gift and GST tax exemptions---and a practical review of ways your client might use the increased exemptions and lower tax rates to transfer wealth while minimizing tax liabilities.
