“America is a land of taxation that was founded to avoid taxation.”
— Dr. Laurence J. Peter

In these uncertain times, it is difficult to plan anything. The potential loss of the large gift tax exemption next year has everyone talking about making gifts this year to “lock it in.”

Please join us for a discussion of the current state of the laws, possible changes on the horizon, and your options in the remaining few months of the year to take advantage of the exemption.

We will also discuss common pitfalls for executors, trustees and agents under powers of attorney (“fiduciaries”), and how to insulate them against claims from disgruntled beneficiaries. Bring your fiduciaries so they can learn how to perform their duties correctly.
