I understand the reason for by-pass trusts to obtain estate tax exemption for each spouse. If spouse does not and will not need the $675K (current exemption)and I have about this amount in IRA's and 401K's, why can't I specify other beneficiaries for them and leave remainder of estate to spouse? Does this have the same effect as a by-pass trust, without having to go through the legal hassles?
