Trusts are widely used in both financial and estate planning. This course provides CPAs with an overview of the rules governing the formation of trusts, the tax consequences of different trust vehicles, and the rules governing the administration of trusts. Specific topics include living trusts, spendthrift trusts, charitable trusts, and alternatives to trusts that can be used to achieve certain financial objectives. PLEASE NOTE: Not accepted for Enrolled Agents. Course material is similar to #6035: The Creation, Modification and Termination of Trusts and #6040: The Living Trust, The Charitable Trust, and Trust Alternatives;
therefore, we recommend that you should not take #6035 and/or #6040 in the same CPE reporting period. All course material provided. No prerequisites. Course level: Basic.
