Tax Law Basics for Probate and Estate Planning Attorneys
Help build your estate planning practice by mastering key tax law concepts. Our expert explains the unified credit, unlimited marital deduction, general powers of appointment, disclaimers, and more.
Neal Nusholtz explains the unified credit:
“Unified Credit is a dollar amount that determines if you pay estate and gift taxes. It’s used for both and any amount of gifts that are made will reduce the remaining amount of the unified credits. For example, If the unified credits were ten million dollars and you made a million dollars of gifts your remaining unified credit would be nine million dollars. It’s the number over which you pay over 40% estate or gift tax if you exceed that number”.
