25 Real Property Probate and Trust Journal 385
ABSTRACT: Recent amendments to the federal estate and gift tax laws limited the amount of the marital deduction allowable for transfers to a survivng spouse who is not a citizen of the United States. Marital deduction relief can be obtained, however, by the transfer of property into a qualified domestic trust (QDOT). The authors examine the tax treatment of QDOTs and the pertinent planning considerations for testators with noncitizen spouses. Available on HeinOnline.
