Likely Changes in Typical Revocable Trusts after the 
2017 Tax Reform Act

Most estate planners continue to use a trust structure that became popular in the mid-1980s, but that will probably change now.  A very significant development in 2012 and the extensive 2017 tax reform act mean that estate planning can become simpler for the vast majority of people.
