Product Description:

This coursebook is for all attorneys whose clients have family farms.

Estate planning for farms and farm assets is a practice that requires specific knowledge and tools to ensure the best client representation. This legal course offers condensed information on the challenges and opportunities unique to estate planning for farmers.

Family farms and ranches pose unique estate planning challenges. The senior generation often wants to preserve the heritage of family control but faces a host of challenges—how to fund estate and gift tax liability arising from highly illiquid property, how to preserve assets, and how to plan for a smooth transition of ownership and operation.

Furthermore, several provisions of the estate tax code are unique to family farms and ranches. Planning for family farms and ranches is unlike planning for other property. This coursebook provides you with a real-world guide to the unique factual circumstances and estate tax provisions of planning for family farms and ranches
