Navigating Estate Planning & Tax Proposals in an Election Year: Your Estate Planning

March 19, 2024

In the midst of a presidential election year, the landscape of tax law is as dynamic as the political climate. The Biden Administration’s unveiling of tax proposals on March 11, 2024, has sparked conversations and concerns among those keen on estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes. At Omni 360 Advisors, we understand the importance of staying ahead in these changing times. Our team is committed to guiding you through these proposed changes, ensuring your estate planning strategies are both compliant and optimized.

Understanding the Proposed Changes

The administration’s proposals signal significant shifts in several key areas of estate planning:

  • Enhanced Reporting for Trusts: Trusts in the U.S. with assets over $300,000 would need to report their estimated total value and inclusion ratio annually, increasing the administrative oversight on trusts.
  • Revising Defined Value Formula Clauses: A move to eliminate IRS involvement in defined value formula clauses could challenge long-standing practices in estate planning.
  • Capping Annual Exclusion Gifts: The proposal to limit annual exclusion gifts to $50,000 per year would fundamentally change gift-giving strategies, impacting how individuals plan for wealth transfer.
  • Tightening GST Tax Rules: The administration seeks to restrict generation-skipping transfer tax exemptions, limiting them to direct skips and beneficiaries within two generations of the transferor.
  • Grantor Trust Taxation Reforms: Proposed changes to the taxation of grantor trusts include new rules around transfers and the treatment of income taxes paid on behalf of the grantor as gifts.

Election Year Considerations

In an election year, the prospect of tax legislation can seem particularly uncertain. The proposals laid out by the current administration could either be fast-tracked or stalled, depending on the political winds. Such times call for proactive, informed planning. It’s crucial to consider how these changes, if enacted, could affect your estate planning, and to remain adaptable to both current realities and future possibilities.

What You Should Do Next

Given the complexities of the proposed tax changes and the added layer of uncertainty brought on by the election year, it’s more important than ever to work with a professional team that encompasses lawyers, accountants, tax strategists, and financial advisors. Here’s how Omni 360 Advisors can assist you:
