Section of Taxation:
ESTATE AND GIFT TAXES COMMITTEE


Message From The Chair



The Estate and Gift Taxes Committee is committed to providing high quality continuing legal education programs to its members (to date, primarily at Committee Meetings and at Mini-Programs) on estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax topics. Our goal is to provide talks and panel discussions on particular substantive topics, new developments, and drafting points. While many topics are for experienced practitioners, we also try to address the educational needs of those new to the practice. Another important role of the Committee is to provide comments and guidance on new developments in the law, always with sound tax policy objectives in mind.

Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings.

Sincerely,
Benjamin G. Carter
Chair of the Estate and Gift Taxes Committee

Our area of responsibility is the federal transfer tax system consisting of the estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes.
