Under the proposed budget for 2015, President Obama would implement changes that would significantly affect estate taxes.
The key estate tax-related proposals include:
- A new $3.5 million state tax exemption and a one million dollar gift exemption
- Non-taxable annual gifts would be limited to $50,000 per donor
- Step-ups would not be allowed on intangible properties such as stocks and bonds.
