Estate planning tools: Using the GRAT as a tax shelter

An accidental loophole in American estate planning legislation could help the nation's richest citizens avoid billions of dollars in taxes. Billionaires in Florida are often required to pay outrageous 40 percent estate or gift taxes on their assets. Now, though, a newly popular type of trust is providing a critical tax shield that could have preserved about $100 billion in wealth since the year 2000. This important estate planning tool has been called a "mockery of the tax code," but it is benefiting scores of wealthy Americans who are committed to smart estate planning.
