Trusts have re-emerged as an important instrument for tax and financial planning professionals to distinguish themselves from salespeople.

Trusts have always been crucial to ultra-high net worth individuals, and the SECURE Act, which is expected to be signed later this year, expands the use of trusts to individuals with IRAs of $1 million or more.

This is the first of a two-class course on trusts, part of A4A's focus on skills you need now. It also differentiates you from financial product salespeople. This class covers 30 situations illustrating when a trust reduces taxes, legally shields, or otherwise enables prudent management of assets in the best interest of clients currently, as well as for an eternity, including:

1. Revocable Living Trust (RLT)
2. Irrevocable Trusts
3. Simple Trusts; Complex Trusts
4. Intentionally Defective Grantor Trust (IDGT)
5. Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
6. Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)
7. Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT)
8. Stand-Alone IRA Beneficiary Trust
9. Special Needs Trust (SNT)
10. Minor Trust
11. Spendthrift Trust
12. Blind Trust
13. Discretionary v. Non-Discretionary Trust
14. Medicaid Trust
15. Crummey Trust
16. 2642(c) Trust
17. Bypass Trust (B-Trust or Credit Shelter Trust)
18. Qualified Terminal Interest Property Trust (QTIP Trust or marital trust)
19. Dynasty Trust (GST Exempt Trust)
20. Grantor Retained Annuity Trust (GRAT)
21. Grantor Retained Unitrust (GRUT)
22. Grantor Retained Income Trust (GRIT)
