Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) October 12, 2013
Free registration is now open for an InterActive Legal’s exclusive webinar, "NIIT-Picking: How the New Net Investment Income Tax Affects Trust Drafting and Administration,” in honor of Estate Planners Week. Natalie Choate will discuss the impact of section 1411 on administration of existing trusts and drafting of future trusts in light of the recent IRS proposed regulation (i.e. Can a trust that is named as beneficiary of a retirement plan be written or administered in a way that reduces the NIIT impact for beneficiaries?). If there is time, Natalie will also cover other recent developments in retirement benefits planning, and take questions on any topic concerning estate planning for retirement benefits.
This webinar is a unique opportunity to hear first-hand how some of the premier thought-leaders are strategizing to adapt to new opportunities and challenges presented in estate planning.
The complimentary webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 15th at 1:00 pm ET and is open to the entire estate and tax planning community.
