Issue #7: Allow a Trustee to Grant a General Power of Appointment to a Beneficiary to Enable Estate Inclusion and Date of Death Value for Basis Where Appropriate – Appointment to Creditors Only

Clause: Trustee May Grant Testamentary Power of Appointment

The passage of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has heralded a new era in estate planning. The greatly increased transfer tax exclusion to $11.18 million, indexed for inflation, is effective from 2018 through 2025, when it is suspended, and returns to the 2017 levels, indexed for inflation. Taking into account political risk, the opportunity to take advantage of the 2017 law could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Portability is retained. Estate tax planning is “simplified” for many people. Seeking optimal income tax basis adjustments is a goal for everyone. 

 

That said, however, for many people, the need for trusts and more sophisticated planning may not be just a matter of tax planning. That has been simplified. However, issues of asset protection, management, blended families, state death taxes, providing for multi-generations of a family, etc. have not vanished with the passage of the 2017 Act. Instead, planners now have more options to present to clients – options that require careful selection and preparation of the Forms needed to address a wide variety of planning issues.
