Hal is a U.S. citizen, and Winona is a citizen of Australia. Winona has indicated she plans to return to Australia if Hal predeceases her. Your supervising partner has requested that you identify any potential pitfalls in Hal’s current estate plan so she can bring them to his attention. Hal has stated that, in addition to providing some wealth transfers to his wife Winona, he wants to treat his three children by his prior marriage (Gina, Halbert, and Julianna) approximately equally in terms of total wealth received from him by gift plus as a result of his death. Hal and Winona prepared and submitted via e-mail the list of assets shown below. • Principal residence in Topeka titled in the names of Hal and Winona, joint tenants with right of survivorship; purchased with $280,000 of consideration furnished solely by Winona; fair market value of $400,000. • Household furnishings in the Topeka house; fair market value of $34,000.

Hal acquired the 12 shares in 1988 in a Sec. 351 transaction. Julianna and Gina own the remaining stock, 44 shares each, which Hal gifted to them in 2010. • Individual retirement account at ToKan State Bank. The account consists of the funds rolled directly into the IRA from the non-contributory qualified retirement plan of Hal’s former employer when Hal retired. Fair market value of the IRA is $540,000.

He is the IRA beneficiary, and Winona is the contingent beneficiary if Hal predeceases her. • Cash of $825,000 in checking and savings accounts in Hal’s name. • Mutual fund shares in the names of Hal and Julianna, joint tenants with right of survivorship.

The stock is in Hal’s name, and he is one of six stockholders; fair market value of his shares was $79,000.
