saw that on Saints Talk. Not good at all.
Given all of his assets, a creation of a trust to control his sports teams would seem to be a tax dodge (which is why it'll happen). He should have been giving out portions of his teams and fortune for years, at a reasonable rate to avoid tax penalties. Maybe if all his heirs were underage, but even most of his grandchildren are over age of consent. So, the team(s) will be moved when he passes.
I just meant they will have to be sold off. If you inherit a team worth 900+ million, you have to pay the estate taxes on it. Even with a trust, there will be a hefty bill. That's why most families pass it down over time, spread it out. Given his advanced age, I don't think Benson can pass it over without consequences.
Tax law isn't my area though.. I just know alot of teams have had problems with it..
