The Future of Estate Taxes

The Future of Estate Taxes
By TOM HERMAN
August 3, 2008
Q: I read your recent answer to a reader question about estate taxes. Part of your answer stated that the estate tax is supposed to disappear entirely in 2010. I seem to recall that when the current rules were put in place several years ago, unless Congress makes changes, starting in 2011 the exemption reverts back to the $600,000 limit that was in place before the current rules were enacted. Is that the case? Also, what will happen to the step-up in basis for inherited assets?
