AAA-CPA PA/DE Valley Chapter Meeting
Gift Tax Return Adequate Disclosure; Transferee Liability

Class presented by: Steve Gorin, JD, CPA

Program Description
Drawn from Steve Gorin’s 2nd quarter 2023 newsletter, our presenter will cover important recent cases on how to satisfy the adequate disclosure requirements for gift tax returns and transferee liability for estate tax that may now be imposed on beneficiaries automatically when they receive a bequest.

Our presentation will provide clarification of standards for gift tax return adequate disclosure (case of first impression for Tax Court) and review how this informs return preparation and planning for defined value formula transactions.

Steve will also review how transferee liability normally required a fraudulent (voidable) transfer under state law as well as a finding of federal liability, but a split decision of the Ninth Circuit ruled that no such finding is required regarding unpaid estate tax when distributions of bequeathed property are made to beneficiaries – no matter how far down the line they are. He will provide an overview of strategic implications if such a rule applies to your clients.
