Your 2012 Gifting Opportunity of a Lifetime – Time is Running Out!

As many of you know, in December 2010, President Obama signed into law the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010 (“Act”). The Act made significant changes to the federal estate tax, gift tax, and generation skipping (“GST”) tax laws, impacting the estate planning that we do for many of our clients and creating significant estate planning opportunities for these clients. The article I have linked below summarizes some of the Act’s key changes and provides you with my observations about the Act’s impact from an estate planning perspective. It also makes recommendations about some estate planning strategies for clients to consider this year. Of particular note, the provisions of the Act expire on December 31, 2012. As a result, time is running out, as we now have only three months left in 2012, and these strategies need to be completed before the end of the year in order to take advantage of this “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity.
