Give it Away Now: Thinking Beyond Retirement Income in Split Interest Gifts
November 9 @ 11:00 am
The current tax law landscape has left us with a challenging and at times formidable tax planning environment. The silver lining of this situation is the fertile ground it provides for charitable planning and the opportunity for philanthropic individuals to make their important legacy gifts. Looking beyond retirement income in CRTs and CGAs allows us to explore the ways that these tools can be used for transfer and income tax planning. We will discuss trends and tools that will allow us to keep current with changing needs and priorities. We will also explore examples that will help us better understand the way these tools, when used in unconventional manners, can offer more opportunities for charitable donors to meet their planning and tax needs in conjunction with honoring their call to support charitable work and providing for their loved ones.
