Estate Planning Considerations amid COVID-19’s Economic Impact
The COVID-19 pandemic has created future economic uncertainty and raised many questions and decisions that affect people’s planning for their futures. This unprecedented situation has also presented prudent opportunities for families to take advantage of restructuring, including factors to minimize estate and gift taxes. Given the economic consequences of the pandemic, as well as the upcoming election, it’s important to consider various planning strategies to successfully manage your estate.
On Thursday, August 27, 2020, Kurt Trimarchi (Managing Partner), Mark Heath (Partner & Director of Tax Services), and Eric Blocher, (Principal & Director of Business Valuation Services) with McKonly & Asbury discussed where we’re at and where we’re going as it relates to estate planning amid COVID-19. Our presenters discussed:
- Income tax planning for 2020 – why the election may impact what you want to do this year.
- Estate tax planning – why it’s important to take advantage of the current lifetime exemption sooner rather than later.
- Business valuation considerations – understanding the impact on estate planning.
