Charity Lead Trust (CLT)

For many investors, legacy preservation, wealth transfer and philanthropic giving are among the key objectives of their long-term financial plans. If an investor is seeking to provide a consistent annual donation to a specific charitable organization for a period of time and help minimize estate taxes for their heirs; a Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) can help support these goals. While the types and structures of CLTs vary, they are often implemented in support of estate planning, tax planning and philanthropic giving strategies.

A Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) is an irrevocable trust that can provide a regular income stream to the charity or charities of the donor’s choice over a fixed term, with the remaining assets then distributed to specified beneficiaries or the grantor.

Key Takeaways from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, tax reform is on the minds of individuals and businesses as we enter the final weeks of 2017. The Conference Committee last week reconciled differences between the House and Senate versions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to produce a unified piece of legislation, which passed the Senate Tuesday night and the House Wednesday afternoon. We detail below several key tax changes as they pertain to individual taxpayers. Most provisions sunset after 2025, most notably excluding the new corporate tax rate. While it is not possible to know what changes or extensions Congress may make (if any) in the next several years, we wanted to share the information below so that you can coordinate our advice with that of your tax advisor.
