The field of estate planning is increasingly complex. Finding appropriate solutions to a client’s estate issues upon his/her death are critical to a number of areas, including the estate tax return of the decedent, the decedent’s final income tax return, the income tax return of the estate of the decedent, and the estate and financial planning issues of the heirs of the decedent. This course provides the practitioner an understanding of after-death planning issues of a decedent’s estate.
