Jerome M. Hesch, MBA, JD, AEP® (Distinguished)
When real estate is encumbered by mortgage liabilities in excess of its income tax basis, a lifetime transfer, either by sale or by gift, causes the taxpayer to report phantom income. This intermediate webinar will first evaluate how to eliminate the phantom gain at death and still implement an estate tax freeze using the preferred partnership structure. The second part will examine how one can defer the reporting of the phantom gain if a lifetime sale of the negative basis real estate is contemplated. The income tax deferral will become even more important if there is no estate tax and no income tax-free step-up in basis at death. It is recommended that participants have an understanding of the income tax issues that arise when an asset subject to liabilities is either sold or disposed of by a lifetime gift.
Jerome M. Hesch, MBA, JD, AEP® (Distinguished) is the Director of the Notre Dame Tax & Estate Planning Institute, an Adjunct Professor of Law at Florida International University, University of Miami, Vanderbilt University, and Boston University On-Line LL.M. Program.

Diana S.C. Zeydel, JD, LL.M., AEP® (Distinguished)
This intermediate/advanced session will focus on lifetime planning for a client with diminishing capacity (physical or mental impairment), whether a guardianship can be avoided; if there is family disharmony, how the estate planning documents stand up in the event of a guardianship and what we should add to our estate planning documents even absent a dispute to ensure the ability to deal with all aspects of preserving and enhancing the estate plan when the client is no longer able to act.
Diana S.C. Zeydel is the Global Chair of the Trusts & Estates Department of Greenberg Traurig, P.A. and is a member of the Florida, New York and Alaska Bars. She focuses her practice on estate, business succession and tax planning for high-net-worth individuals and families as well as planning for U.S. and non-U.S. citizens and residents. Diana specializes in sophisticated intra-generational wealth transfer strategies, business succession planning and complex transfer tax controversies. She received her LL.M. in Taxation from New York University School of Law (1993), her J.D. from Yale Law School (1986) and her B.A. from Yale University (1982).
