When to Employ the Graegin Technique


We need a deduction in the estate … let’s get a loan. Not so fast.

Certain conditions must exist to use the Graegin Technique. The executor/trustee must be able to demonstrate an actual necessity for the loan to pay estate expenses; and they must be able to show that the estate/trust did not have sufficient liquidity to pay its obligations except by borrowing funds. This video reviews disqualifying facts and discusses alternatives to the Graegin Technique.
