Course Description

After the death of a family member, the surviving spouse and/or the children have many tax and financial issues to deal with. Because of their expertise and their knowledge of the family’s financial situation, CPAs and other financial advisors are ideally situated to assist in these matters. This course will address the following areas:


  • Review the process of distributing a decedent’s assets with a particular emphasis on the distinction between “probate” and “non-probate” assets and a discussion of disclaimer opportunities.

  • Discuss the potential estate and income tax impact of death including the tax filing responsibilities and important tax elections.

  • Consider the rules regarding distributions from retirement plans, including IRAs, with a view toward properly counseling the beneficiary(ies).

  • Discuss necessary updates to the estate plans of the survivors including will updates and beneficiary designation changes.
