John Bunge, of Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP, has made available for download his article, “Updated IRS mortality tables will shift the economics of life expectancy-based estate planning,” published in JDSUPRA. The abstract is as follows:

Also affected are split-interest trust transactions calculated using the IRS “7520” rate, e.g., grantor-retained annuity trusts, qualified personal residence trusts, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, and more. Adding to the shifting economics from increasing interest rates, the Treasury Department’s recent publication of long-awaited proposed regulations will change the life-expectancy factors used in life expectancy–based estate planning.
