In terms of tax ramifications, comment on what is accomplished in the follow-
ing disclaimer situations occurring in 2015.

The major asset in Lester’s estate is stock worth $3.5 million. Under the applica-
ble state law of descent and distribution, children precede grandchildren in
order of inheritance. As Nora is already well-off and in ill health, she disclaims
Lester’s property.

the $3 million remainder to her husband, George. Raymond disclaims $570,000
of his inheritance.
