Covid, the Biden Tax Plan, and Estate Planning

This week Brent is joined by special co-host Darren Case to talk about how Covid-19 has changed estate planning and to prognosticate about the Biden Tax Plan. They dive into how to plan in the current uncertainty, what to expect with a new administration, how to structure gifts to irrevocable trusts, and how to take advantage of opportunities available in 2020 that may not last in 2021. They also discuss how to help families prepare children for transfers of wealth.
