Brent chats about how discounts abound in transfer tax planning (estate and gift tax)! Although sometimes discounts come from ownership of entities, like FLPs, that is not always the case. Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts, Private Annuities, and Remainder Purchase Marital Trusts, all use discounts that are required in the Internal Revenue Code and the regulations. These discounts can be substantial and helpful depending on the 7520 rate. Brent discusses how that is so, how the regulatory discounts are calculated, and how they can be used to your or your client’s advantage.
