In this seminar, estate planning attorney Tim Murphy will explore some of the unique challenges and opportunities in creating a estate plan for vintners, farmers and/or ranchers. You will learn strategies to "give away the farm" while meeting the required obligations of estate tax provisions, wills, trusts and other elements that would encompass an agrarian business. Mr. Murphy will discuss transfers within families prior to death including gifts, buy-sell agreements, installment sales, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRAT), family corporations and family partnerships. He will also cover conservation easements, special use valuations and transfers upon death, delineating potential pitfalls regarding liquidity issues that may occur when dealing with a trust-owned farm/ranch.
