Considering Tax Exemption Inflation Increases in Estate Plans

Estate-planning-worksheet-300x200

Increased exemptions for estate, GST, and gift taxes (as well as increases to the gift tax exclusion) create greater flexibility for estate planning, as taxpayers can now make larger lifetime gifts, leverage more assets through various estate planning techniques, and shift income producing assets to individuals subject to lower taxes. These changes have extensive implications for existing and new estate plans.
