Colorado Estate Tax Issues Lawyers
As of 2015, the federal estate tax rate can reach 40% of the taxable estate for estates with values over $5.4 million dollars. The estate value protected is increased each year based upon the inflation rate. The estate tax is different than income tax that US citizens pay on an annual basis. This is a tax on the transfer of assets from the deceased to his or her beneficiaries. If you need assistance with estate tax issues, we at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. can.
The taxable estate includes all assets titled in the deceased name including their share of:
- Joint assets
- Life insurance proceeds
- Retirement assets
- Assets with named beneficiaries
- Assets requiring probate
