Please join us on Wednesday, December 7 (a different date than initially advertised) for our next Estate Planning Council event.

Randall M. Jacobs, a partner with Yoder Ainlay Ulmer & Buckingham will present our annual legislative update.

In this program, he will cover details included in the legislation related to Estate and Trusts enacted during the 2022 Session.  Some topics included will be

  • Estate and trust technical corrections and updates to “slayer rule”
  • Distributions from closed supervised estates
  • Increase in the ceiling to $100,000 for small estate affidavits
  • Some details on the new rules and procedures under the Uniform Trust Decanting Act

We look forward to seeing you at Das Dutchman Essenhaus for lunch, followed by the program.
