Intentionally Defective Grantor Trusts


Learn how to effectively plan with intentionally defective grantor trusts and know the tax issues related to them.

Many high-net-worth individuals have exhausted their lifetime exclusion from gift and estate taxation. So, gifting additional funds to a trust or to loved ones will then generate gift tax. Likewise, when appreciating assets are left in one's estate after exhausting the federal estate tax exclusion, assets in excess of that exemption amount will generate estate tax in accordance with the full fair market value of all of a person's assets as of that person's date of death. This course will introduce the Intentionally Defective Grantor Trust (IDGT) as a tool to help high-net-worth individuals transfer appreciating assets out of their names to leverage their estate and gift tax exemptions. The material will also explain the sale to the defective grantor trust as a method to achieve estate and gift tax savings. This information is critical for attorneys, accountants, and estate planners to assist their clients with maximizing tax savings using the sale to the intentionally defective grantor trust as a tool to leverage the estate and gift tax exemption.
