In this month’s episode of Trust Me! we interview Chelsea Suttmann and Melissa Karlsten, authors of a recent article entitled “Advanced Planning—A Decade in Review: What Have We Learned Over the Last Decade and Where Are we Headed?” The article appeared in Volume 27, Issue 1 of the California Trusts and Estates Quarterly published by the Trusts and Estates Section of the California Lawyers Association.

We discuss changes and threatened changes in estate tax law from 2010 forward, from the fiscal cliff “use-it-or-lose-it” estate tax exemption planning to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. We next turn our attention to the estate tax proposals before Congress, particularly the Biden Administration’s “Build Back Better” plan. Although the legislation is still very fluid, listeners will get a sense of what might be coming our way in the near future. We also reflect on the lessons learned through the twists and turns of estate tax law in the last decade, and what planners should be thinking about and discussing with their clients as we move into 2022.

Thank you for listening to Trust Me!
