Time: 3 - 5 p.m. EDT
Description: The recent change in political leadership had brought great uncertainty with respect to estate tax issues. The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, passed by the Bush administration, is scheduled to "sunset" at the end of 2010 unless Congress extends the law. If Congress does not act by the end of this year, the estate tax will disappear and then remerge in 2011 with higher rates and lower exemptions thresholds. There are a number of pending bills, which aim to reconcile some of the confusion surrounding estate tax. These new bills aim to address specific estate tax issues such as: permanent state tax exemptions, max estate taxes, portability provision for spouses, gift tax exemptions and much more.
