2 years ago · 24 min listen

In this episode, learn what happens when a client gifts and sells property to an intentionally defective grantor trust (IDGT) and passes away 15 years later. Bob Keebler and Jonathan Blattmachr discuss the following topics related to the basis of the property:

  • How is the basis of property determined?

  • What are exceptions to the income tax free step-up in basis rule?

  • Why is an installment sale to a grantor trust so powerful?

  • What do proposed regulations say about the tax-free step up in basis and what may happen post-election?
