Important Changes Affect Federal Estate Tax Laws

By Frank S. Macgill, published on August 31, 2011, in Business in Savannah.

Under the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, the federal estate tax was repealed for individuals who died in 2010. However, the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010, which became law on December 17, 2010, retroactively reinstated the estate tax for persons who died in 2010 and provided much-needed answers about federal laws governing estate taxes for 2010, 2011 and 2012.

The top estate tax rate was originally scheduled to rise to 55 percent for estates of individuals dying after 2010, with an exemption of $1 million. However, the 2010 Tax Relief Act restored the estate tax for individuals dying in 2010, with a $5 million exemption and maximum rate of 35 percent. The Act also reduced the top rate to 35 percent and allows an exemption of $5 million for 2011 and 2012.

Things to Consider With the Proposed Repeal of the Death Tax

By Frank S. Macgill, published on February 18, 2011, in Savannah Morning News.

What exactly is the death tax and why is it so unpopular? The term “death tax” generally refers to the federal estate and gift tax, which taxes gifts and estates at rates beginning at 37 percent and climbing to 55 percent. The first $675,000 in assets is sheltered from taxation by the “unified estate and gift tax credit,” commonly referred to as the “unified credit amount.” It is scheduled to increase to $1 million by 2006 under current law. With proper estate planning, a married couple can shelter up to $1.35 million in assets ($2 million in 2006) from the death tax.

You Can Look that Gift Horse in the Mouth, and Also Owe the Tax Man

By Frank S. Macgill, published on March 5, 2005, in Savannah Morning News.

Most of us think we know a gift when we see it. It comes colorfully wrapped and tied up with a bow. However when it comes to gifts for federal gift tax purposes, sometimes a gift can mean more (or less) than we would expect.
