About the Presentation:
Niels Bohr, the Nobel laureate in Physics, is quoted as saying, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future!” This is true and one should be very careful about predicting what changes Congress might make in the tax laws. Even if the originating bill is introduced by a member of the majority party, the final result, if there is one, is likely to look significantly different from its first incarnation. With tax planning, the Devil is indeed in the details, and it is the details that most change during the legislative process.
Many clients hear or read of new tax proposals and may worry about how these proposals, if enacted, would affect their carefully designed, and occasionally expensive, estate plan. Planners discussing the possible effects of proposed legislation on an estate plan should be careful always to start the discussion with a caveat that one cannot predict how a law will affect an estate plan until after one has the opportunity to examine in detail the final version of the law. Clients may, nonetheless, still want at least some sense of what may be to come.
