Estate Taxes: Start at 38 percent and max out at 45%


Capital Gain Taxes: Are taxes on the appreciation in value of an asset. Common assets that are subject to this are Real Estate, Stocks and Bonds. The appreciation is currently taxed at 15% or 20%.


 

Step Up In Basis: If an asset passes to the beneficiary via Will, Trust or through intestate probate the beneficiary will take the asset at its fair market value as of the date of death of the decedent. This then avoids capital gains taxes.


Gifting: A person is allowed to gift up to $14,000.00 per year per person without any tax consequence. This figured is tied in with inflation and periodically increases.

 

Lifetime Gifting: One is allowed to give away up to five million dollars during their lifetime without paying any tax. Said amount reduces your unified credit as does any gift in excess of $14,000.00.
