Let us help with you with your 2013 estate taxes questions?

If your estate’s value is between $1 million and $5.12 million, you may want to prepare for a change in 2013. If Congress doesn’t make additional changes, the “Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010”may come to an end on December 31, 2012. In 2012, every dollar you own above the $5.12 million exemption will be subject to federal estate taxes upon your death. In 2013, the exemption level may drop from $5.12 million to $1 million. With proper planning you may be able to lessen additional estate taxes.
