Understanding the Potential 2024 Estate and Gift Tax Rates: An Insight

September 25, 2023

Tax rules and regulations frequently change, and it’s crucial to stay updated to make informed financial decisions. As we approach 2024, let’s delve into the potential changes in the estate and gift tax rates and their implications.

1. What is an Estate Tax? An estate tax is a fee charged on the transfer of assets (like property, money, and stocks) after someone passes away. Essentially, if you inherit assets, the government may take a portion as tax before you get your share.

2. Gift Tax – A Brief Overview Gift tax, on the other hand, applies when you give someone money or property while you’re still alive. If your gift surpasses a certain amount, you might have to pay a tax on it.

3. Expected Changes in 2024 Based on the insights from the article, here are the main takeaways for 2024:

  • There may be an increase in the estate and gift tax rates, which means higher taxes on big inheritances and large gifts.
  • The tax-free amount (called the exemption) might be reduced. Currently, you can give away or leave behind a certain amount without any tax implications. This amount might decrease in 2024, leading to more taxes on smaller inheritances and gifts.

4. Preparing for the Changes Given these potential shifts:

  • It’s wise to consider gifting assets now, before the rules change, especially if you plan to give large amounts.
  • Re-evaluating your estate plan and working with experts can help navigate these changes effectively.
