Wall Street Journal – Why No Estate Tax Could Be a Killer - 02/13/10 “Congress shocked everyone by letting the estate tax lapse on Jan. 1.” “Now, here is the real stunner: For many, the lapse actually will raise taxes.” “Under last year's law, estates up to $3.5 million, or $7 million for married couples, were exempt from federal tax.” “This year that law has been replaced by a fiendishly complex levy raising taxes on the assets of those with little as $1.3 million.” www.skloff.com

  7. 7. Wall Street Journal – Comments - 02/13/10 “Lest we forget, state estate taxes are very much alive and 'killing' estates. Despite the temporary disappearance of federal estate taxes, many states have retained draconian state estate taxes.” “Many states have state estate tax exemptions that are drastically lower than both the former federal estate tax exemption and the current federal exemption for capital gains. With so many states running unprecedented deficits, those without state estate taxes may soon initiate them.” “Fortunately, there are still a number of estate planning tools that are flexible enough to avoid both capital gains and the very likely return of estate taxes.” - Aaron Skloff, AIF, CFA, MBA - CEO - Skloff Financial Group www.skloff.com
