Taxation and Estate Planning for Clients with Collectible Assets


Gain a better understanding of what clients need to know about adding to and passing on their collectible assets.

There are different income tax rules when it comes to acquiring and selling art. Artists, dealers and collectors have different rates; individuals, general partnerships, LLCs and S Corps have different levels of income tax and liabilities. Make sure you know what taxes are related to collectables and learn to properly advise your clients when they are adding to or passing on their collectible assets. This white paper is a guide to income taxes for qualified opportunity funds and charitable deductions and contributions; and transfer taxes for estate, gift and GST tax; and discusses sales and use taxes when acquiring and selling art.
