Antelope Valley Estate Planning Law Firm Advises California Residents to Monitor Changes to the Federal Estate Tax


Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln advises California residents to closely monitor the many estate tax proposals before the Congress. The changes may add some clarity to the current confusion, but they may also significantly affect current estate plans.

Lancaster, Calif. (PRWEB) January 12, 2010 — Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln is advising California residents to monitor the proposed changes to the federal estate tax that are before the Congress.

“The federal estate tax system is in a bit of flux right now,” said Kevin Von Tungeln, partner at Thompson Von Tungeln. “The current law is due to expire in 2010, and allow the federal estate tax rate to revert to the 55 percent level that it was prior to 2001. The top rate has been declining since 2001 and is scheduled to drop to zero percent in 2010. The potential for changes after 2009 is creating anxiety for anyone creating their estate plan.”
