Estate Taxes

The Federal Estate Tax is a transfer tax which is levied by the Internal Revenue Service on the passing of assets of a decedent to his or her beneficiaries if the amount transferred is over the estate tax exemption amount. The estate tax exemption amount changes from time to time and is also adjusted for inflation. Careful planning is needed to insure that the exemptions granted by current tax laws are fully utilized.
