Program Description:
In today’s estate planning environment for married couples in the mass affluent and moderately wealth markets, the Bypass Trust is generally not the ideal testamentary trust at the death of the first spouse. However, most joint revocable living trusts have not been updated since the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, and therefore the Bypass is the default trust and a QTIP Trust might not even be provided for.

The shift in these estates (say less than $10 million) is to now focus on Income Tax Benefits via the step-up in basis, and less in the avoidance of Estate Taxes which can be managed thru portability elections. We will explore scenarios to create income tax benefits by [a] using techniques to manage or alter existing Bypass Trusts; [b] to deal with Bypass Trust provisions when a first spouse dies currently; and [c] what changes you should be looking for in estate plans where, thankfully, both spouses are still living.
