Are you aware of the hidden complexities surrounding Life Insurance policies and Estate Taxes? Join us today as we delve into the world of Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts (ILITs) and discover how they can be your financial safeguard.
For every Life insurance policy, there is an owner, usually the insured, and a beneficiary. However, at death, the policy proceeds may be included in the owner’s estate for Estate Tax consideration, potentially leading to unwanted tax consequences. But here’s where the Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust steps in as a game-changer.
With an ILIT, you create an entity separate from your estate, providing numerous benefits:
1️⃣ Control: The trustee of the ILIT can oversee distributions, ensuring your wishes are followed and your loved ones are provided for.
2️⃣ Liquidity: ILITs offer added liquidity without the need to liquidate assets for your survivors, easing financial burdens during challenging times.
3️⃣ Tax Efficiency: When you transfer a policy into an ILIT, the insured must survive for three years. If not, the policy value remains outside the estate, avoiding potential estate taxes.
4️⃣ Gift Tax Strategy: Most ILITs are funded by annual gifts, providing a tax-efficient way to protect your assets for future generations.
5️⃣ Asset Management: ILITs can purchase assets from the estate or loan money to the estate, allowing for versatile estate planning.
