Client/Legal Alert
The State of Delaware is very close to enacting major revisions to its Abandoned and Unclaimed Property Law. This client alert focuses on some of those changes, which include a reduced look-back period for unclaimed property audits, reinstating interest, a permanent voluntary disclosure program, a new statutory notice requirement, and additional compliance burdens with respect to reporting unclaimed property. The legislation may offer opportunities to holders of Delaware unclaimed property that are currently unavailable under Delaware law. The bill has already been passed by both legislative chambers and is widely expected to be signed by the governor in the immediate future.

On 30 June 2015, the US Tax Court issued Webber v. Commissioner, 144 TC no. 17, an important decision applying the investor control doctrine to two non-US private placement life insurance policies. Although the Tax Court decided the case on extreme facts raised in the case, the decision highlights the significance of the investor control doctrine in insurance planning for high net worth individuals and indicates that the investor control doctrine is an area of scrutiny by the IRS. As illustrated by the court's decision in Webber, policyholders, insurers, and investment managers should each critically examine both the governing contractual language and their course of conduct when administering insurance policies and investing assets backing policies.
