Federal estate tax

The exclusion amount for the estate, gift, and generation-skipping taxes is $5.49 million in 2017. Estate and gift tax rates are 40%.

Your estate plan should be designed to help provide protection during your lifetime, not just at death. As you age, it becomes increasingly important to include robust “lifetime planning” provisions in durable powers of attorney, health care directives, and living trusts.

Individuals with a taxable estate above $5.49 million and married couples with a taxable estate above $10.98 million should talk with an estate attorney about suitable planning alternatives.

Gift tax annual exclusion

Each individual may transfer up to $14,000 per person in 2017 to any number of beneficiaries (family or non-family), without paying gift tax or “using up” any available credits.
