Divorce Transfers and Settlements
Field of Study:
Participants will learn how to apply, implement, and evaluate the strategic tax aspects of
marital dissolutions and living together arrangements. Current per-spectives on property transfers and asset divisions
are examined with an empha-sis on planning considerations. This mini-course reviews property settlements and other
transfers incident to divorce. Basis allocation, third party transfers and purchases between spouses are also examined.
Common pitfalls for the unwary such as transfers in trust, installment notes, and purchases between spouses are analyzed.
Application of these tax principles is exampled in selected asset divi-sions of the residence, business interests,
insurance, and pension benefits.
