How to Lower Your Capital Gains Taxes with Adam Buchwalter (Ep. 94)

Some states (like California, New Jersey, and New York) charge significant capital gains taxes. 

However, there are 8 states that have zero capital gains tax!

This disparity creates some tax planning opportunities for people living in highly taxed states.

Tune in to Derek Myron’s conversation with Adam Buchwalter, Partner at Wilson Elser, about effective tax-saving strategies for high-net-worth individuals, founder-led business owners, and C-level executives who want to reduce their capital gains taxes from a large liquidity event.

Adam and Derek discuss:

  • The benefits of setting up a non-grantor trust in a state with lower tax rates
  • ING Strategies and their tax implications
  • Why the same strategy may not work in New York or California (and what to do instead)
  • Tax advantages of QTIP Trusts
  • And more

ING Trusts: How to Minimize State Income Taxes (Ep. 83)

There is a wide disparity in tax rates between U.S. states. For example, the top tax rate in California is 13.3%, while South Dakota has 0% state tax on trusts!

In this episode, Kyle Malmstrom, Managing Director, and Roby Kotcamp, CFP®, Senior Wealth Advisor, explain how to use an Incomplete Non-Grantor (ING) Trust to minimize state income taxes.

Kyle and Roby discuss:

  • Types of assets suitable for an ING Trust
  • The correct sequence of steps to ensure the ING Trust is set up properly
  • An example showcasing the practical application and scope of an ING Trust
  • Potential pitfalls of the ING Trust strategy
  • Alternative strategies for states where an ING Trust is not possible (E.g., California)
  • And more
