Our tax planning attorneys have extensive knowledge about current tax laws and can help clients plan for, minimize and comply with wealth transfer taxes. 

For example, the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has created very significant opportunities to pass on substantial wealth tax-free.  The Basie Exclusion Amount (or Unified Credit) for federal estate and gift tax was $11.18 million in 2018.  This amount is adjusted annually for inflation. 

This unique tax savings opportunity is set to expire in 2025.  Therefore, time is of the essence If you wish to take advantage of this estate planning opportunity.

Almost all transfers of money or property during a person’s life, or after their death, has tax consequences. These are often called wealth transfer taxes and can include gift tax, estate tax & generation-skipping transfer tax.
