The Department of Labor released data on inflation on Wednesday. Wolters Kluwer has projected that as a result the federal estate tax exemption will increase from the current $5.34 million to $5.43 million in 2015. However, it is not projected that the annual gift tax exemption will increase, but rather remain the same at $14,000.
