What is the current status of federal estate laws?

Estate laws have finally stabilized. The IRS only taxes those estates which exceed $5,430,000.00. The estate tax rate is 40% of a taxable estate.

While the Federal Government does not tax the majority of estates, various states maintain inheritance taxes at much lower rates ($675,000 in NJ). Note this does not include leaving everything to your spouse. Check with your advisor about inheritance taxes where you live. Not having a will could mean the State determines how your estate will be distributed, regardless of how much or little you own.
