Handwritten "Q&A"Q: What do you think about the future of the estate tax now that Trump is president? I heard one of his proposals was to eliminate the estate tax. Do I need to even be concerned with estate tax planning going forward?

A: I understand your concern. President Trump’s tax reform proposal, as described on his campaign website, stated that, “The Trump Plan will repeal the death tax, but capital gains held until death and valued over $10 million will be subject to tax to exempt small businesses and family farms. To prevent abuse, contributions of appreciated assets into a private charity established by the decedent or the decedent’s relatives will be disallowed.”
