Recent Developments in Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax


Recent rulings grant extensions and some regulations are deleted.

The predeceased ancestor rule moves a skip person up one generation so that the skip person will be treated as being within one generation of the transferor so no GST tax liability. For transfers occurring after December 31, 2000, transferor’s are permitted to make a retroactive allocation of his or her GST exemption if a non-skip person, who had a present or future interest in the trust and who was a lineal descendant of a grandparent of the transferor or the transferor’s spouse, dies before the transferor. New concept of indirect skip, defined in Section 2632(c)(3)(A) as any transfer of property (other than a direct skip) which is subject to the gift tax, and which is made to a GST Trust. Taxpayer Relief Act of 2010 provides for the portability of the estate tax applicable exclusion amount for surviving spouse.
