With the federal estate tax exemption at a mighty $11,400,000 and climbing, the estate planning landscape has shifted away from estate tax deferral and avoidance. At a minimum, existing plans need to be reviewed for appropriateness, even if the plan cannot (apparently) be modified. This session will examine the changing approach to estate planning as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and analyze options for revocable and irrevocable trusts.
