Introduction

Over recent years there has been a significant increase in the use of the family limited partnership ("FLP") as a component of estate planning for wealthier individuals. Although the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") continues to launch attacks on the FLP concept and the legislature continues to propose changes to curtail FLP tax benefits, FLPs are still being used by practitioners as an estate planning strategy and asset protection technique.

This article discusses the myriad of issues that must be considered, not only with regard to the creation of a FLP, but also, and more importantly, with the proper administration, operation and management thereof. As practitioners, we must closely follow the continued development of this area of law by monitoring pertinent statutes and rulings as well as IRS pronouncements in order to determine whether revising existing documents and/or instituting new procedures may be necessary or desirable.
