Course Description

On April 26, 2022, the U.S. Treasury issued new clawback regulations addressing the recapture of many common client transfers. Every tax professional assisting clients with potentially taxable estates will need to quickly address how these proposed regulations apply to standard estate planning transfers, including notes, GRATs, GRITs, QPRTs, 2701 freezes, and transfers included in an estate under IRC Sections 2035, 2036, 2037, 2038, and 2042.

In this class, Bob Keebler and Marty Shenkman will explain the new regulations in numerical detail, addressing the examples in the regulations and additional examples so that webinar attendees can master the core concepts and quickly apply those concepts to their clients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the clawback of “includible” gifts—the heart of the new regulations

  • Recall the unified gift and estate tax system

  • Define the reduction in the exemption in 2026 and the gift and estate tax ordering rules

  • Recognize the impact of DSUE on clawback and planning opportunities

  • Describe the clawback treatment of traditional “completed” gifts

  • Define the new 5% test

  • Identify treatment of promises to pay

  • Give examples of tax planning for the new 18-month test, including promises to pay

  • Recognize treatment of preferred partnership freezes, treatment of GRATs, QPRTs, and GRITs

  • Define treatment of property included under IRC Section 2035, including life insurance transfers

  • Identify treatment of property included under IRC Sections 2036 to 2041
