Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA (OPENPRESS) Estate planning for global families and how charities should deal with crypto-currency will be hot topics at this year's 63rd annual Estate Planning Seminar, to be held Nov. 12-13, 2018, in Seattle.
As our world changes and becomes smaller, the rules around estate planning are important to know. Local families who live and earn in multiple countries face significant estate planning challenges and planning opportunities with U.S. tax rules that apply to non-U.S. citizens and U.S. residents with foreign assets.
Charities also face new challenges and opportunities as donors explore using virtual currency to make gifts. Those attending the Estate Planning Seminar, sponsored by the Estate Planning Council of Seattle and the University of Washington School of Law, will discuss these issues and a multitude of other estate planning topics. They include estate planning in anticipation of difficult beneficiaries, business succession planning, and planning for potentially vulnerable clients.
"The Estate Planning Seminar has traditionally been the premier source in the Northwest to address and better understand local and national estate planning issues," said Scott Wallace, JD, with Perkins Coie LLP, in Seattle, chair of the 63rd Annual Estate Planning Seminar. "This year will be no different. The seminar features an outstanding faculty consisting of local and national speakers who will strive to provide useful and insightful content to each attendee."
Nearly 1,000 estate planners from Washington state and elsewhere in the country are expected to attend the seminar, which takes place at the Washington State Convention Center, 705 Pike Street, Seattle. The seminar is one of the largest of its kind in the country and attracts top lawyers, accountants, insurance professionals, trust officers, financial planners, and planned giving/development officers for nonprofit organizations.
The seminar runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 12 and Nov. 13. For more information about the Estate Planning Seminar, contact Heather Alhadeff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-616-3361. Register online at www.seattleestateplanningseminar.com.
