Abstract

It is this author’s contention that Ithaca Trust holds that when valuation must be computed by actuarial methods, all facts, except for those necessary to use the tables, must be ignored. This requirement is so despite the fact that an actual facts-and-circumstances analysis would likely produce a more realistic result.
