Time:  Noon

Speakers: David Gaw

David Gaw, well known leader in trust administration processes and law in California, will discuss:

  • Use of checklists, spreadsheets, and diagrams
  • Examples of administration, using stock and real estate as assets
  • Asset allocation, division between individuals and trusts, and property tax issues
  • Income tax issues including IRC 654 election, fiscal year end, DNI, and the “65 day rule” (IRC 663(b))
  • Effects of section 16061.7 notice
  • Why draft credit trusts, and effects on filing 706, Q-Tipping?, and “Delaware Tax Trap”
  • Filing 706 for portability?  Why?  And when?
  • “Informal” accounting vs. “formal” accounting either court or non-court

Prior to the publication of Mr. Gaw's below publications, there was no written or acknowledged process for the administration of a living trust on the death of a single person, on the death of the first Spouse to die, or on the death of the Surviving Spouse.  Mr. Gaw created a comprehensive system for administering a trust which included standard forms and processes.  This system continues to be widely used by estate planning lawyers and paralegals throughout California.
