ABA Program Examines Implications of Estate Tax Repeal of 2010

The _ Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section will host a teleconference, “What Hath Congress Wrought? Dealing with Estate Tax Repeal, Carryover Basis and Other Potential Complications of Congressional Inaction,” on Jan. 21, to discuss the implications of the temporary estate tax repeal and the elimination of stepped-up basis valuations of inherited property that are in effect for 2010.

The upcoming teleconference will specifically address the complications the one-year repeal creates, possible future action from Congress and the impact of the situation on consumers and those who advise them on estate planning matters. Three nationally recognized experts in estate planning, and active in the section, will provide insights into the state of the law, and how practitioners must counsel their clients in an uncertain environment.

Who:
Ellen Harrison, Tax and Estate Planning Practitioner, Washington, D.C.
Carlyn McCaffrey, Trust and Estates Practitioner and Adjunct Professor of Law, New York University, New York
Prof. Jeffrey Pennell, Richard H. Clark Professor of Law, Emory University, and author of Estate Planning, Atlanta
