Overview of the Graegin Technique


How does the Graegin Technique work?

One way to deal with an illiquid estate is by using the Graegin Technique. This technique came out of a tax court case in which money was borrowed to provide liquidity to an estate but the question arose wondering if the interest on the loan would be a deductible administration expense for the estate. The answer was … it depends on a lot of factors. This video reviews how Graegin was interpreted and how it has continued to be interpreted after the case was settled.
