How to Use Grantor Retained Income Trusts to Reduce the Gross Estate

SUCCESSFUL ESTATE PLANNING IDEAS AND METHODS
An individual who is already in a taxable estate situation and who owns property which may appreciate in value (and that will eventually be transferred to some member of his or her family) may be contemplating the future tax consequences with some trepidation. That individual may not be ready to make a present gift of the property because he or she is still not ready to give up the income from or use of the asset. Moreover, even if he or she did make a present outright gift, it would be a taxable transfer to the extent of the whole value of the property. If the individual does not act before dying, thereby allowing the property to become part of his or her gross estate for estate tax purposes, the value of the property will likely have substantially increased, thereby exacerbating the estate tax problem.
