Key points

On Wednesday, September 15, The House Ways and Means Committee advanced a proposal for a $2.1 trillion tax increase.

The proposal could drastically change the gift and estate tax treatment of new irrevocable trusts and transactions with certain existing trusts.

The proposal would also reduce the current gift and estate tax exemption of $11.7 million to $5 million (adjusted for inflation) as of January 1, 2022. This also reduces the current generation-skipping transfer tax exemption to the same level. 

Other income tax measures are also included in the proposal.

Recommendation: Act now to implement or update your estate plan.
