Did we get everything correct in the planning "rush" of 2020 and 2021? The IRS has successfully attacked indirect gifts, improperly valued GRATs and poorly described transfers of business interests. What should we be checking? What should we be doing in light of the Proposed Secure Act Regulations? Is it time to start thinking about planning for the sunset of the 2017 Act at the end of 2025 - or possible earlier tax law changes? Address planning techniques to recommend now, including properly using SLATs, decanting, powers of appointment and more.

Address several critical issues concerning grantor trusts. Topics include whether grantor trusts will survive the government's attempts to eliminate their planning benefits; what happens when the grantor's liquidity fails; can grantor powers be relinquished; can the trustee of a Defective Grantor Trust help the grantor pay income taxes; when grantors die what happens to the trust; and how does a grantor trust funded with S corporation shares preserve the S election when the shares pass to heirs?
