Whether You’re a Financial Advisor, CPA or Estate Planning Attorney…

You Have a Rare, Limited-Time Opportunity To Drive Significant Revenue to Your Practice!

The bad news is the just released IRS Proposed Regulations under Code Section 2704 will severely restrict your and your clients’ ability to utilize deep valuation discounts when doing gift and estate tax planning. However, the good news is the IRS public hearing on these Regs won’t occur until December 1, the Regs will not become final until at least 30 days after that and - - best of all - - the Regs will not be effective until issued as final. This means you and your clients have a tremendous window of opportunity between now and the end of the year! First, you need to understand how the new Regs work:

  • What impactful changes have been made under the IRC §2704(a) Regs, including the brand new regulatory three year “in contemplation of death” rule
  • What massive valuation changes have been made under the §2704(b) Regs, including:
    • The new anti-Kerr provisions regarding the ability to liquidate a transferred interest
    • The new anti-state law restrictions (including specific references to Texas and Nevada law)
    • The prohibition against discounts for assignee interests
    • The critical “minimum value” test
    • The new restriction on nominal transfers to charities and non-family members including the 10% of value test, the 20% of value test and a new second “three year rule”
    • The new definition of “covered entities”
    • Special treatment of S-Corps and QSSTs
    • The state law impact on classifications of entities
    • The new 50% of capital or profits interest test
    • The impact of the family attribution rules
    • The new definition of “disregarded restrictions”
    • The influence of the Estate of Chenoweth Court ruling
    • The impact on 709 and 706 preparation when interests pass to non-family members
    • New restrictions on valuation by virtue of mandating long-term notes
    • What is a “trade or business”, including the new 60% rule

Second, besides knowing what the Regs say, you need to know where the planning opportunities are and what to do in the next 90 plus days to protect your clients and reduce your risk! Join us and two nationally renowned, top gift and estate tax experts - - Robert S. Keebler CPA/PFS, MST, AEP (Distinguished), CGMA and Steven J. Oshins J.D., AEP (Distinguished) - - for a very special presentation entitled, “The New Section 2704 Regs: Planning Traps and Opportunities”.
