In recent years, the need for “traditional” estate tax planning has dramatically decreased.

Attendees will analyze the paradigm shift in end-of-life tax planning created by the ballooning estate/gift tax exemption, where for more than 99% of families, the primary focus has shifted away from estate tax minimization, and towards basis management and income tax planning.

Finally, the program will explore how the rise of the digital world has created a new and largely unaddressed wrinkle in estate planning: how to effectively transition “digital” assets, which may include assets with a monetary value, as well as assets with “just” personal or sentimental value, such as social media profiles and digital photos, and online subscriptions.
