This session will conclude with the first part of Estate Planning Considerations Under the Wisconsin Domestic Partnership Law & Planning for "Unmarried" Couples. 

Estate Planning Considerations Under the Wisconsin Domestic Partnership Law & Planning for "Unmarried" Couples 

In 2013, the United States Supreme Court struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in the Windsor case, and the Treasury Department issued Notice IR-2013-72. Earlier this year, a federal district court ruled that Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. All of these actions impact estate tax and income tax planning for Wisconsin same-sex clients. 

This session will discuss the current status of this evolving law at the state level and continuing issues in nonrecognition states. Discussion will also cover the operation of Wisconsin domestic partnerships, and estate planning documents and techniques for "unmarried" same-sex couples.
