What Exemptions Can I Plan For?

While wills and trusts can help ensure that there is a limited probate process, or that the inheritance is given directly to your beneficiary, it may not necessarily account for federal and state inheritance or estate taxes. Federal taxes can be applied to any estate over $5.25 million, and the taxable rate is as high as 40%.

Taxes can seem daunting, particularly for high net worth individuals, but there are ways to address the issue, including:

  • Making charitable donations addressed in the will or trust
  • Making unlimited transfers to a spouse
  • Planning for the the “portability” of tax exemptions for married spouses
  • Filing estate taxes in a timely manner
  • Creating an A-B trust, or bypass trust
  • Working with an attorney to establish strategic gifting plans
  • Planning life insurance trusts

Of course, each individual and their family is unique, and business ventures, families, property, and taxes must all taken into consideration. If you have questions or concerns, you should reach out to a trusted Montgomery County probate attorney right away.
