Description Post-ATRA planning for larger estates will increasingly focus on income tax planning, the management of tax basis, and maximizing the "step-up" in basis at death. This presentation will discuss:
  • Measuring the transfer tax costs (including state estate and inheritance taxes) against the income tax savings from the "step-up" on different types of assets
  • Recapturing assets that have already been transferred
  • Multiplying the applicable exclusion amount
  • Using trust and partnership elections, distributions, and reorganizations to maximize the "step-up" and "split" income across taxpayers
