New Tax Law in Tennessee: How State and Federal Changes Affect Estate Planning - on CD
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 was enacted on January 2, 2013. The Act makes significant changes that will affect many estate plans. It permanently maintains the $5 million estate tax exclusion amount, with this amount adjusted for inflation each year; makes permanent the unification of the gift and estate tax exclusion amounts; makes permanent the unification of the estate tax and GST tax exclusion amounts; permanently caps the maximum estate, gift, and GST tax rates at 40 percent; and makes permanent the concept of estate and gift tax exclusion portability.
In 2012, the Tennessee legislature increased the maximum allowable exemption from the inheritance tax from $1 million to $1.25 million for individuals dying in 2013, $2 million in 2014, and $5 million in 2015. The inheritance tax will be eliminated beginning in 2016.
