Low Interest Rate Gift Planning

Blank Rome LLP

While clients still have all of 2020 to take advantage of annual exclusion gifts (currently $15,000 per donee) and the increased lifetime gift tax exemption (now $11,580,000 per taxpayer), practitioners may wish to recommend that clients not wait too long to take advantage of the current low interest rate gift opportunities for a number of reasons, including the advantage that once a gift is made, any future appreciation of the transferred property and any future income generated thereby will escape transfer taxes.
