Congressional Super Committee Fails to Agree on Deficit Reduction Measures

A couple of weeks ago we reported to you about rumors then circulating that the Congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (“Super Committee”) might recommend reducing the estate and gift tax exemption to $1,000,000 as early as November 23, 2011. That did not occur and, in fact, the mandate of the Super Committee expired on November 23 with no deficit reduction proposals being agreed upon by the Super Committee.

Please see full issue below for more information.
