Sweeping New Tax Legislation Signed Into Law

On December 17, 2010, President Obama signed into law sweeping new tax legislation that makes significant changes to estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer (“GST”) taxes. Not only may the new law have a dramatic impact on your existing estate plan, which we now strongly encourage you to review, it may also provide an excellent opportunity to implement additional planning that could benefit several generations of descendants.

In this regard, it is important to note that the new law is temporary – the favorable tax provisions sunset at the end of 2012, at which time Congress will either pass new legislation or allow the provisions of the 2001 tax law to take effect ($1 million exemption and a top estate and gift tax rate of 55%). Thus, it is critical for you to review your estate plan during this two year period to ensure you are maximizing your tax saving opportunities.
