The recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has altered the tax landscape for a lot of individuals and businesses. The changes are extensive and this blog provides a high-level overview of some of the highlights to keep you informed. Due to the sweeping nature of the changes and the need for continued guidance, we’d like the opportunity to have a personalized conversation with you now to discuss planning opportunities for your specific situation. Additional conversations and tax projections are likely necessary to ensure we maximize your tax benefits. Please call our office at your earliest convenience to schedule a meeting.
Estate and gift tax exemptions
Estate and gift tax laws have undergone a number of changes over the past decade. Under the TCJA, the estate and gift tax exemption almost doubled to $11.18 million per person effective as of Jan. 1, 2018. There is still guidance necessary to reconcile gifts made and estates that occurred prior to the increased exemption and the impact on portability. We would be pleased to work collaboratively with your estate planning attorney to make sure your estate plan is appropriate with this change.
