Factors 5.0, the popular actuarial calculation software written by Jerome Caulfield and distributed by Practical Drafting magazine has been updated to reflect the release of a new IRS mortality table (Table 2000CM) effective for transfers occurring on and after May 1, 2009.
Like its predecessors, the updated version (Factors 5.1) calculates and displays income, remainder and annuity factors for stated terms, one life, two lives, terms contingent on one life and terms contingent on two lives with special emphasis on GRITs, GRATs, GRUTs, variable rate annuities and other analysis under Internal Revenue Code section 2702. There is no easier or more reliable way to plan for transfers subject to section 2702 than Factors 5.1!
Factors 5.1 will run under versions of Microsoft Windows subsequent to Windows 95, as well as Microsoft Vista.
Current subscribers to Practical Drafting magazine and previous purchasers of any version of Factors can receive Factors 5.1 free of charge.
General inquiries about Factors should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
