The 2010 Tax Act Made A Number of Changes to the Federal Estate, Gift, and Generation Skipping Transfer Tax Laws – To What Extent Should Your Estate Plan Rely On Those Changes?

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (the “2010 Tax Act”) made a significant number of changes to the federal estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer (“GST”) tax laws. One question which many of our clients have asked is “Do I need to make any changes to my existing estate planning documents as a result of the new laws?”

Our January 2011 newsletter discusses the extent to which the changes made by the 2010 Tax Act may or may not cause people to change their estate plans, and the factors you should consider before making changes based on the new laws. Please follow this link to download a copy of the full article:
