Estates Trusts

The TCJA (Tax Cuts Job Act) which was passed in 2017 greatly impacted tax law, and general estates and trusts for individuals which plan on devising property, money, or other possessions to loved ones. Estate planning and devising a trust are areas of the law which are highly regulated by regulatory law, tax law, and family law. Visitors to the National Law Review will learn about the latest developments in tax law, family law, and estate and trust law, and how these fields come together, as well as reading legal analysis on devising a legal trust, will, or estate plan.

The transfer of assets in anticipation of death has been greatly impacted by the new tax laws, allowing the trustor to redistribute assets and property, without major tax implications for themselves, or the receiving party. Visitors will learn about these developments, and other relevant news and stories relating to estate planning, probate planning, and litigation in this area of law. Additionally, the National Law Review features articles on how family businesses can create a succession plan and otherwise plan for the future, as well as information on specialized circumstances like creating a will or a trust for a family member with special needs.

Hot issues including will contests, business succession planning, creating a charitable trust, durable powers of attorney, creating revocable and irrevocable trusts, generation-skipping transfer tax (GST), estate taxes, and the distribution of trust assets, are among the many stories covered for visitors on the National Law Review. Further, details about gift taxes, federal taxes, and other taxes which may arise under the American Taxpayer Relief Act, are also covered by the National Law Review. Any IRS details and areas of estate planning and probate which might be covered under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), are also topics visitors can read about on the website.
