Course Description

Recent shifts and changes in the taxation of estates and trusts have also changed some of the planning techniques that practitioners should consider when advising clients. Trust is a very useful and flexible tool for estate and gift tax planning, yet it is probably the most underused estate management technique. 

This CE tax course will discuss trusts are used as a strategy to reduce estate and gift taxes.  

Financial planners will understand the significance of making gifts to trusts not only for tax purposes but for asset preservation, privacy, and planning to assist a client in a position to best protect their families.  

In this CE/CPE webinar, speaker Warren Bergstein will explore the definition of a trust, the parties to a trust, and the types of trusts that require essential knowledge to engage in this area. Marital trusts and charitable trusts are explored in great length.

Gradually, though, our clients began relying on us more and more for advice about how to protect and grow their assets, how to make their businesses run better and even how to take some of the worry out of fi nancial decision-making. So we worked hard to get even smarter about these and other fi nancial issues. 

Our partners hold certifi cations in fi nancial planning, are on the faculties of universities in the New York metro area and possess a wide range of fi nancial and insurance licenses. And we work with a broad network of fi nancial specialists with every conceivable approach. We either know the answer — or we know who to ask; we can do what you need, or we can connect you with someone who can. We’re here for you.

Today, nearly 1,500 clients — small- and mediumsized businesses in all sectors, high net worth individuals and not-for-profi ts — consider Adelman Katz & Mond their most trusted business advisors.
