Impact on Estate & Succession Planning Under the Trump Administration
Estate and succession planning are key to multi-generational client representation, and tax practitioners who become involved in this area raise their level of service to a new and productive level.
With the incoming Trump Administration and a Republican-controlled Congress, substantive tax legislation on income and estate tax issues is expected to be considered and likely become law in 2017. CPAs, EAs and other tax practitioners must consider possible legislation in planning for 2017 and beyond to ensure their clients properly and completely take advantage of entities and techniques that contribute to wealth preservation, management and succession.
Whether the Federal estate tax is repealed is an open question; however, either way, estate and succession planning must take into account possible new tax laws when planning for family business, investment and personal assets.
The CPA and EA have a key role in helping clients understand the interplay of family goals and tax issues and alternatives as an integral part of estate and succession planning.
