Planning in the Heart or Wake of Corona Virus for Wealthy Families - Turning Lemons into Lemonade or Gold An Exclusive Webinar for Advisors Who Care



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


The COVID-19 crisis provides a perfect storm for dynamic and valuable tax, financial and estate planning situations for affluent families and their business and investment entities. Historically low interest rates, high mortality risks for older clients, and the possibility of taking substantial discounts with respect to the value of privately held businesses and real estate will allow for dramatically effective estate tax planning for our best clients. In addition, assets placed into properly structured trusts that can alleviate estate tax concerns, if and when the estate tax exemption is reduced to one-half of its value in 2026, or before then, make perfect sense now, especially for families who have leveraged situations that could possibly turn negative if a rough recession follows the virus freeze.

This 60-minute presentation will provide planners with conversation points, charts, planning ideas and established strategies, which include the following:

1. Making LLCs and other entities more bullet-proof from possible IRS challenges, and best positioned for basis step up on death.

2. Establishing or further funding trusts which can escape estate taxation, and have advantages for creditor protection planning, while being reversible if desired.

3. A review of the installment sale to a defective grantor trust, what interest rates can be used, and how to avoid Section 2036(a) and other possible challenges.

4. How self-canceling installment notes, private annuities and the SCGRAT can work for a wealthy individual with health challenges to avoids tens of millions of dollars of estate tax.

5. How to counsel a client whose company or professional practice may be insolvent.

6. Income tax planning for individuals who will have lower income in 2020, including using Section 678 Trusts and pension planning to have income taxed to lower bracket tax payers and to obtain deductions under Section 199A. 

7. Using non qualified retirement plan vehicles as a possible solutions for businesses that receive PPP funding that must be spent on allowable costs within 8 weeks of the receipt of loan proceeds in order to be forgiven.

8.  Creditor protection planning just in case.

9. Special considerations for the owners of successful professional practices.

10. And much more.
