INCOME AND TRANSFER TAX PLANNING GROUP


MISSION STATEMENT




This group concentrates on the three federal transfer taxes (estate, gift, and generation-skipping), on the income taxation of trusts, estates, grantors, and beneficiaries, and on tax litigation and controversy. Because these areas of focus comprise the federal tax universe in which most estate planning instruments operate, this group seeks to assist trust and estate attorneys in their constant endeavor to improve their knowledge of these taxes, to stay abreast of ways in which they are changing, to play a role in the development of these tax systems, and to explain how planning can impact later tax disputes. Group members work to improve the transfer tax system by preparing and submitting comments on proposed legislation and proposed regulations, and by suggesting legislative solutions to technical problems.


Group Calls

Please join our periodic toll-free calls to discuss current developments, practical advice regarding how members handle issues that arise in this area, and issues of special interest. Reminders, including discussion topics and dial-in information, are sent to Group members and members of its committees a few days before each call. Please sign up as either a member of the Group or as a member of one of the committees to receive confirmation of the time and call-in instructions.

Although one of our five Committees "hosts" each call, we anticipate that each call this year will begin with a national speaker providing insights for 20 minutes, with Committee members then covering timely topics of interest to all Group practice areas and all of the Committees. The calls are designed to be interactive so members can participate with questions, comments or insights.

So please mark your calendar! Our calls for the year are scheduled for the third Thursdays of every other month (more or less):

November 20
January 22 (moved to 4th Thursday to avoid Heckerling)
March 19
May 21
July 16

Details for our next Group Conference Call:

November 20, 2014
12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. CT/1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m. ET
Call-in number: TBA
Participant Passcode: TBA
