Modern Uses of Partnerships in Estate Planning

Date: Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Time: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Location: Bethesda Marriott Hotel | 5151 Pooks Hill Road, Bethesda, MD 20814
Speaker: Paul S. Lee, Senior Regional Wealth Advisor and Managing Director, Northern Trust


Program Description
ATRA has vaulted income tax planning and tax basis management to the forefront of estate planning. Entities taxed as partnerships are the ideal vehicle in this new paradigm. This presentation will discuss how partnerships can be used to change the basis of assets, maximize the “step-up,” defer and shift tax items (income and deductions), and transfer wealth in a world of diminishing valuation discounts.
