2020 Teleconference: Maximizing Flexibility With Powers of Appointment

Description

Powers of appointment should be near the top of our checklist when designing trust instruments. When used properly, they are often a great technique to inject flexibility into a long-term trust while at the same time not forfeiting otherwise available tax benefits. As with most estate planning tools, however, a thorough understanding of the proper design of powers of appointment is necessary to avoid negative or even disastrous tax and non-tax consequences. The following common issues will be discussed:

  • Achieving Basis Step-Up Through Powers of Appointment
  • Non-Tax Uses for Powers of Appointment
  • Issues Addressed by the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act
  • Avoiding Ambiguity and Disputes in Drafting Language Conferring and Exercising Powers of Appointment
