Summary of Obama’s 2013 Budget Proposal for Estate and Gift Taxes

A June 22, 2011article on Trusts and Estates magazine’s website contains a nice summary of President Obama’s budget proposal measures effecting estate planning.  However, with Republican control in Congress and the possibility of a Republican President being elected next year, there is no certainty that any of the changes will actually take effect.  Obama already agreed to the temporary increase of the estate tax exemption to $5 million and reduction of the rate to 35% through the end of 2012, and there has been recent discussion in Congress of continuing the law beyond next year.
