Do You Know How to Help Most Client
Now Following the SECURE Act?
Provide Your Clients the Best Income Tax Solutions,
While Maintaining Asset Protection Using These Strategies!
Since December, thousands of lawyers and CPAs have been developing ideas to address the SECURE Act’s 10-Year Rule for the vast majority of clients with significant retirement plans who also use trusts as the mainstay of their estate plan.
Some solutions focus on financial engineering, such as converting traditional IRA accounts to Roth IRAs or increasing taxable distributions to move funds to life insurance. Other solutions involve a significant charitable component, such as leaving funds to variations of charitable remainder trusts. While these solutions are certainly viable and important to consider, they unfortunately only appeal to a small minority of clients. Most clients will want a solution that mitigates the income tax burden of the loss of the stretch to the maximum extent possible, while still keeping the most protection in trust from creditors, divorce and estate tax.
This is where you come in to help and we have brought on the experts to help show you how!
