Problems with the Texas disclaimer laws

Texas's two disclaimer statutes (Texas Estates Code Chapter 122 and Texas Trust Code Section 112.010) have some problems.  Glenn Karisch and Julia Jonas of Austin presented a paper on Problems with Texas Disclaimer Laws and What to Do About Them at the Advanced Estate Planning and Probate Course in San Antonio June 11, 2014.  Here are links to the paper and the related Powerpoint slides (updated August 19, 2014).

The Real Estate, Probate and Trust Law Section has approved inclusion of the Texas Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act in its 2015 legislative package.  A copy of the current draft of that legislation is attached to the paper.
