Multi-Generational Planning

When you begin your estate plan, you are often planning for you, your spouse, and your children.  You may also want to consider including your grandchildren or prospective grandchildren as part of your estate plan.  You can plan so that several generations benefit from your success and reduce the tax burdens that may be passed on to your children and grandchildren with their inheritance.

Federal law imposes a Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax (GSTT) at the top estate tax rate on gifts, either outright or in trust, that benefit a person more than one generation below you, such as a grandchild or an unrelated person more than 37.5 years your junior.  By creating a Triple Generation Tax Savings Trust, you can use your GSTT exemption, currently equal to the estate tax exemption ($11,580,000 in 2020). 

We will help you design a Triple Generation Tax Savings Trust that effectively allows your children access to your assets but “skips” your children as beneficiaries of a portion of your estate for tax purposes only. Such assets will not be included in your children’s or grandchildren’s taxable estates and you can control what access they have to the trust funds.
