Abstract

The rapid run-up in farm and ranch real estate values in recent years has resulted in some property owners considering a charitable contribution but often with a life estate for the surviving spouse.1 That result was made possible by an amendment in the Tax Reform Act of 1969.2 Such a plan can be implemented rather simply with a legal life estate followed by a remainder interest to the charitable organization.
