For decades the primary tax focus of estate planning has been in the minimization of transfer tax costs. For over 99% of Americans, the passage of ATRA shifted the tax focus of estate planning to income tax planning and tax basis planning. Jeff Scroggin will discuss some of the practical traps and opportunities in planning for the basis of assets, including pre-mortem basis planning, planning for loss assets and why many of the previous techniques clients previously adopted have pivoted 180 degrees.
