What Is Estate Planning?

There was a time when tax reduction was the main focus of most estate plans, even for middle class families. Back then, before the 2001 tax law, the estate tax was imposed on estates worth more than $600,000. The estate tax captured many middle class people if they didn’t plan to reduce the tax. Even […]

I greatly enjoy your Retirement Watch newsletter. Over these many years I have gleaned several helpful estate and investing suggestions with the most recent one being in your July, 2017 edition.

My little estate is nearing the $5.5M valuation, and I read on page 2 your suggestion that such size estates may want to consider stepping up their early gifting so as to possibly avoid any estate tax law changes.

That suggestion struck a chord, and so I have just completed a $227,000 (5% of my estate) early gifting program for 27 family and friends. With my successor trustee’s approval, that represents a potential $100,000 in avoided estate taxes at the 40% rate.

God and the economy willing, I expect to recoup that gifted amount within the next 36 months, and depending upon future estate tax laws, I hope to gift another $500,000 when I reach the $6M threshold.

Thanks for the clear and concise estate and retirement information. Again, my heirs and I have greatly benefited from your vast well of knowledge.
