Review and Analysis

From the Paper:

"According to Fiore (1994), taxpayers in general and affluent taxpayers in particular are always on the lookout for new ways to reduce their taxes, especially in the area of estate planning. For this purpose, taxpayers have a wide range of choices available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages depending on a taxpayer's unique circumstances. For instance, "Should a taxpayer incorporate a complex strategy such as a grantor-retained annuity trust," Harmelick and Vandenburgh (2001) ask, "a dynasty trust or a family limited partnership in his estate plan?" (p. 95)."
