|VALUATION DISCOUNT FOR GIFT & ESTATE TAX PLANNING MAY BE ENDING
A popular technique used by some business owners to reduce estate taxes and facilitate business succession planning may soon be closing. On August 2, 2016, the IRS issued proposed regulations which, if adopted, would substantially reduce the ability of business owners to achieve certain valuation discounts on the transfers of minority interests in family owned businesses for gift and estate tax purposes. As the proposed regulations must go through a 90-day public comment period, and will not go into effect until 30 days after being finalized, these changes will not likely take effect until early 2017. That creates an excellent planning opportunity now until the end of the year to take advantage of the existing law before potential changes take effect.
