  14. 14. Unlimited Marital Deduction Federally-recognized married couples have the ability to pass an unlimited amount of assets between them both during life and upon death Non-Spouse couples are NOT eligible for this benefit May have major tax implications – Planning is key!

  20. 20. Protecting Your Company Sponsored Qualified Retirement Plans <ul><li>Proper management of underlying investment options </li></ul><ul><li>Historically, not estate planning friendly to non-spouse beneficiaries </li></ul><ul><li>Plans fall under ERISA/Federal guidelines and can change at any time </li></ul><ul><li>Plans are restrictive! </li></ul>
  21. 21. Action Item! Leave nothing to chance Rollover former qualified plans to a Traditional IRA (Open investment platform, outside ERISA/Federal Guidelines, more flexibility, etc.)

  27. 27. Attorney at Law <ul><li>Philip J. Hoskins, Esq. </li></ul><ul><li>Attorney at Law, Law Offices of Philip J. Hoskins </li></ul><ul><li>My firm's primary focus is on estate planning, probate and trust matters, including revocable and irrevocable trusts, wills, powers of attorney and health care directives. I pioneered affordable estate planning that includes a client guide, and easy-to-use methods that allow clients to provide the information needed and custom tailor their documents. I have focused upon the LGBT community in my legal practice since the 1970’s and pioneered the application of estate planning techniques for our community that had previously only been available for those with very large estates.  I was one of the first attorneys to put up a website that delivers useful information about my practice areas and have developed innovative ways to use the internet to reduce costs for my clients.  My background includes both document preparation and estate and probate litigation, giving me an insight into where problems might arise when planning your estate. I am proud to provide affordable legal services of the highest quality </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>California Domestic partnerships are treated in the same way as marriage under state law. </li></ul><ul><li>All earnings are community property and debts are community debts </li></ul><ul><li>For example, if A earns $100,000 and B earns $50,000, both A and B can control all $150,000 of earnings. </li></ul><ul><li>If B runs up $10,000 debt, both are obligated to pay it. </li></ul><ul><li>To end a DP requires getting divorce </li></ul><ul><li>The primary difference is treatment under federal law and how it is treated in other states (many will not recognize the relationship). </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  29. 29. <ul><li>June 2010 IRS Ruling requires registered DP’s and same-sex married couples to declare one half partner’s income on separate federal income tax returns based upon community property laws of California. </li></ul><ul><li>In the example, both A and B claim $75,000 income ($100k + $50k) / 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Applies to tax years 2007 and after.

Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  31. 31. <ul><li>Whether to register or not is a decision that should be discussed with, among others, a tax expert knowledgeable on these issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Domestic partners and all couples living together should consider an agreement between themselves clarifying finances. </li></ul><ul><li>At a minimum, agree what belongs to each at the start of the DP so no disputes later. </li></ul><ul><li>You can, by proper agreement, change many aspects of the law as it applies to you. </li></ul>Philip J.

  33. 33. <ul><li>With an Advance Health Care Directive you can give authority to someone to make health care decisions for you if you are incapacitated. </li></ul><ul><li>You can provide specific instructions for how they should handle those decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>If you become incapacitated can avoid court supervised conservatorship. </li></ul><ul><li>This Directive is important if you want to avoid costly and unwanted extended life support. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  34. 34. <ul><li>In addition to health care issues, you may want to give someone the power to take care of financial matters and take action with respect to your assets and liabilities if you are incapacitated. </li></ul><ul><li>Authorizes someone to file suit on your behalf, file your tax returns and many other essential tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>This is called a Durable Power of Attorney and can be tailored to fit your specific needs and instructions. </li></ul>Philip J.

Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  47. 47. <ul><li>The primary purpose of a revocable (living) trust is to avoid probate and thus: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>speed the distribution of your estate and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>sharply reduce the cost of doing so. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>A trust protects your privacy. </li></ul><ul><li>A trust does not protect assets from creditors nor does it affect estate taxes. </li></ul><ul><li>Only those assets transferred to your trust during your life escape probate. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  48. 48. <ul><li>A revocable, or “living” trust is an entity into which you transfer your assets. </li></ul><ul><li>Any asset that is in your trust is considered by the law to be owned by your trust, not you personally. Therefore, the assets owned by your trust are not subject to probate through the court. </li></ul><ul><li>You deal with assets owned trust in much the same way you deal with them now. The term “revocable” means that during your lifetime, you can change any of the terms of the trust. </li></ul><ul><li>You can change who receives your estate upon death, who succeeds you as trustee, or any other provision. </li></ul><ul><li>Most changes can be made easily and inexpensively. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  49. 49. <ul><li>Real property, no matter where located in most cases </li></ul><ul><li>Some refinance lenders require you to transfer out of your trust. Make sure you put it back in! </li></ul><ul><li>Stock accounts, bank accounts, vehicles, all your assets. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not transfer IRA or any qualified (401k etc.) account. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  50. 50. <ul><li>The person you have named in your trust as your successor trustee takes over management of the trust assets and debts. </li></ul><ul><li>This person will pay your debts, taxes, manage the property and then distribute your assets. </li></ul><ul><li>This process is confidential and does not require public court proceedings. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  51. 51. <ul><li>Even if you have a revocable living trust, you should also have a Will. This is called a “pour over” will. </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose is to deal with assets that were either intentionally or unintentionally not transferred to your trust during your life. Those assets will be transferred to the trust upon your death. </li></ul><ul><li>Caution : These assets may still be subject to probate, however. </li></ul><ul><li>If you do not use a trust, this is the vehicle to distribute your estate upon death. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have children, you can name guardians in your Will. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  52. 52. <ul><li>Irrevocable Insurance Trust </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For an insurance policy to keep it out of your estate for estate tax purposes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Grantor retained interest trusts . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Allows the settlor to retain an interest in trust assets for a limited period of time, with the remainder interest passing your family. This minimizes taxes by incurring a gift tax only for the remainder interest that follows the settlor's retained interest. Domestic Partners cannot use, however because the IRS does not consider you “family”. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Charitable remainder trusts . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Designed to provide benefits to named individuals for a specified period of time, with the remainder interest passing to charity. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Special needs trusts . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The principal purpose of a special needs trust is to preserve government benefits for a disabled or aged beneficiary. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Family Limited Partnerships . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Passes partial ownership now to avoid estate tax. </li></ul></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  53. 53. <ul><li>WITH RECOMMENDED DOCUMENTS </li></ul><ul><li>If incapacitated avoid court involvement, fast and easy solutions </li></ul><ul><li>Control over your estate and what will happen </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid court involvement and protect your privacy </li></ul><ul><li>Estate can be distributed quickly and confidentially </li></ul><ul><li>Far less costly </li></ul><ul><li>DOING NOTHING </li></ul><ul><li>Estate distributed according to state law, not your wishes </li></ul><ul><li>If incapacitated, may require costly conservatorship – will eat up most of your estate </li></ul><ul><li>On death estate will require court supervised probate which will cost about 6% of your estate. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  54. 54. <ul><li>Make sure each agent and trustee knows you have named them and is up to date on where to find documents. </li></ul><ul><li>Scan your documents and keep them on a USB drive. Take the drive with you when you travel. </li></ul><ul><li>Make a list of who to contact: bills, family, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Write out your wishes regarding burial; discuss with key people and keep with documents. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  55. 55. <ul><li>If you already have an estate plan, you should review it at least every two years. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure the people you named are still available </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure all your assets are properly titled – deeds, autos, brokerage accounts etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Laws change so make sure your plan is up to date </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  56. 56. <ul><li>Experience, integrity, confidentiality and affordability with highest quality documents </li></ul><ul><li>Unique system saves you time, money and is convenient. A Guide book to answer questions plus get all your questions answered at your convenience. </li></ul><ul><li>In office, online or in your home service. </li></ul><ul><li>Fixed pricing available for document sets from $895 for an individual, $1,195 for a Couple. </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
  57. 57.
  58. 58. <ul><li>It is tempting to put off estate planning to “later” – but you may be too late. You never really know when you will need the protection. </li></ul><ul><li>I will give you a little incentive to take action now. </li></ul><ul><li>Make a deposit within 7 days for a $100 reduction in fees: (individual - $795/$400 deposit or couple - $1,095/$600 deposit) </li></ul>Philip J. Hoskins, Attorney at Law
