Today, estate planning is not just for the wealthy. Over the next decade millions of estates will file tax returns and billions of dollars will go to Federal and state governments. Put simply: the wealth in an estate goes to those with the legal -- not always the moral -- right to it.
Legislation has made important changes concerning transfer taxes and other matters related to estate planning. The legislation does not, as many people believe, provide for the elimination of the estate tax. In short, millions still have wealth sufficient to create a taxable estate.
However, you do not need to sit back and wait for the politicians to get it right. Virtually anyone who invests sufficient time, energy, and resources in estate planning strategies can greatly reduce the tax or escape it altogether. The terms of your will and trusts, the selection of executors and/or trustees, and the value of gifts you make over your lifetime can greatly conserve your estate and ensure your wealth passes as you might wish.
