He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, serving as a member of its Business Planning Committee and its Employee Benefits in Estate Planning Committee. Mr. Gorin serves on the Council of the Real Property, Probate, Trust and Estate Law Section (RPTE) of the American Bar Association (ABA). He is past chair of RPTE’s Business Planning Group of committees.
Mr. Gorin served as ABA Advisor to the 2008 Amendments to the Uniform Principal and Income Act (UPAIA). The amendment to UPAIA section 409 helps secure the marital estate tax deduction when IRAs and other retirement plans or annuities are payable to marital deductions. This amendment responds to Revenue Ruling 2006-26, in which the IRS stated that the existing UPAIA did not satisfy the IRS’ safe harbor for the marital estate tax deduction. The amendment to UPAIA section 505 clarifies issues arising when a mandatory income trust holds an interest in a flow-through entity, such as a partnership. The amendment responds to litigation in which beneficiaries claimed that the trustee could not retain enough money to pay the trust’s income taxes.
