Event Description


House Planning Post-TCJA


Presented by: 

Martin M. Shenkman, CPA, MBA, PFS, AEP, JD 

Program Description 

The 2017 Tax Act dramatically changed planning for personal residences. Home mortgage interest deductions were restricted, state and local tax ("SALT") limitations were imposed the estate tax and standard deductions were doubled. The interplay of all these changes has opened up new planning opportunities and requires the reconsideration of much of existing/old planning. How can tax deductions be salvaged? What types of trusts can or should be used in this type of planning? What can or should be done with old QPRTs? How are vacation homes affected?


Learning Objectives   

  • Learn how the new 2017 tax rules affect both directly and indirectly planning for homes and vacation homes.
  • Learn creative applications of how grantor trusts may salvage property tax deductions for client homes.
  • Learn nuances and practical implications that must be addressed in trying to save property tax deductions with grantor trusts.
  • Learn how vacation homes and QPRTs are affected and what practitioners might do.
