A B Trust rules are changing for 2011

The new laws signed in December, 2010 for tax relief and job creation contain many tid-bits for estate planning. Now each individual has a $5 million combined exemption for estate and gifts. There is also a new tax rate of 35% which applies to both. A married couple is allowed "portability" or the chance to share their $5 million each for a possible total exemption of $10 million. Whew - my head is spinning already! So glad I have a great estate tax attorney who can help me understand all these changes. Need a referral? Contact me and I would be happy to provide.
