Quick Overview of 2014 Federal Estate and Gift Tax Amounts

The federal estate tax exemption amount is $5,000,000 and is adjusted annually for inflation. This year the exemption amount increases to $5.34 million. This means that a married couple can protect up to $10.68 million. The estate tax rate is 40%.

The annual exclusion from gift taxes will remain at $14,000 for 2014.

You can go it all by yourself when it comes to making an income from your rental properties, and endure all of the risk and headache all by yourself. Or you can look into a property management Oxnard CA that will take all of the guesswork away, and allow you to simply relax and enjoy the extra income a rental property should bring.

Thanks for sharing this overview regarding gift tax amount. As Henderson probate attorney, we should be updated regarding this matter.

I had no idea that the estate tax went up every year. IT is crazy to thing that it is rising over five million dollars this year. How would this affect someones estate planning?

When it comes to estate planning, you should be getting help from an estate lawyer. That way you can know for sure that you are doing things correctly and things go the way that you want them to. It is your estate and by law you have the say in what goes where and who gets what as well.

I've been trying to find some insights on what I want to do with my life. I've been thinking about going into the law field, but I don't know what to do. I like the idea of becoming an estates lawyer though, and I can't wait to learn more.

It is good to learn a little more about estate intricacies like this. You really have to know what you are doing when it comes to handling estates. The paperwork alone can be a real nightmare.

I wonder what the rational for $5 million was. An estate lawyer has to keep abreast of every whim of legislature these days. At least they are trying to keep up with inflation.

This is some really great info that will help me out so much in the future. I have been thinking about starting my estate and will planning. I have two kids now, and it just hit me that I really need to start on this. http://www.ramsdenlaw.com.au/our-services/wills-and-estate-planning/

This very useful information. I am in the process of establishing my estate plans. I own a large home, but its value is under the $5,000,000 limit. Since the gift limit is $14,000, I will have to look into alternative methods for passing my money down.

I can defiantly see the positives of planing out your estate. I honestly should start thinking about that, because my kids are starting to get really old. I mean, it really wouldn't do any harm to have something like this planned.

I can't believe the tax rate is so high. But that is good that the amount has increased quite a bit due to inflation. As a parent, I want my kids to have everything once I bite the dust. A need to talk to a good attorney to help me get everything planned. http://www.severlegal.com/trust.html

My parents were talking about planning their own estate. They have quite a bit of property so it is probably a good thing for them to start looking into. I wonder if they know about the tax rate like this. http://www.vanblk.com/PracticeAreas/TrustEstateEstatePlanning

A huge part in a lot of people's lives is creating and planning out a will. With that being the case, there needs to be will lawyers to help make sure that it's done rights. On top of that, they also make sure that the will is carried out the way it was written.

It is not surprising that many people today fall behind their tax duties and other financial obligations. The global economic downfall has certainly impacted the lives of many Americans today.

Good post. The law of trusts and estates governs the use of certain types of instruments, such as wills, living trusts, or charitable trusts, to provide for an orderly distribution of the assets and payment of any debts or liabilities of the estate. Thank you too much...

Anthony Hopkins can be proud of having created one of the first original horror characters of the postwar era. His Dr. the devil's candy
Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter has rightfully earned a place in the pantheon of legendary monsters. Happy death day Hopkins was only the second actor to have won an Academy Award for playing a villain, the first being Fredric March for his remarkable performance in the rarely-seen "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (1931). The American Film Institute lists Hopkins' Lecter as the #1 screen villain in movie history. Happy death day 2017
