About the Teleseminar

Gifting interests in closely held businesses and appreciated real estate, often held in a partnership or LLC, is one of the primary mechanisms for transferring property.  The transfers are made appealing from a tax perspective by applying various discounts, including for the illiquidity of the property and for transferring only a minority stake in the company or real estate, to the taxable value of the transfer. But the IRS has grown increasingly aggressive in challenging these discounted valuations as not market-based.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to advanced gifting techniques for interests in LLCs, partnerships and S Corps, discount planning, spotting red flags that might trigger IRS challenge and planning to reduce that risk.

  • Advanced gift planning techniques for partnerships, LLCs and S Corp interests
  •  Gifting interests in closely-held companies, real estate, and other ill-liquid assets
  •  Red flags in planning for minority interest discounts
  •  Family business issues, including gifting of non-voting interests and maintenance of formalities
  •  Key considerations in using FLPs v. irrevocable trusts
