Course Description

Portability allows a surviving spouse to retain the deceased spouse’s unused estate and gift tax exemption. Given this year’s great political uncertainty, the portability election may be more important than ever before. Advisors must refresh their understanding of portability in order to help clients who may have an estate tax obligation unexpectedly thrust upon them.

During his webinar, Bob will cover the following topics:
• Portability basics
• The mathematics of portability
• Estate tax consequences of electing portability
• Income tax consequences of electing portability
• Rev. Proc. 2022-32 – late election relief
• 9100 relief for late portability elections
• Portability for IRAs

Learning Objectives:

  • Recall the basics and mathematics of portability

  • Identify the estate tax and income tax consequences of electing portability

  • Describe how 9100 relief may be used in situations of a missed tax election
