An annual estate plan checkup is critical to the health of your estate plan. Because various exclusion, exemption and deduction amounts are adjusted for inflation, they can change from year to year, impacting your plan. Here are a few key figures for 2018 and 2019:

Lifetime Gift and Estate Tax Exemption

  • 2018: $11.18 million
  • 2019: $11.40 million

Generation-skipping Transfer Tax Exemption

  • 2018: $11.18 million
  • 2019: $11.40 million

Annual Gift Tax Exclusion

  • 2018: $15,000
  • 2019: $15,000

Marital Deduction for Gifts to a Non-citizen Spouse

  • 2018: $152,000
  • 2019: $155,000

You may need to update your estate plan based on these changes. But the beginning of the year isn’t the only time for an estate plan checkup. Whenever there are significant changes in your family, such as births, deaths, marriages or divorces, it’s a good idea to revisit your estate plan. Your plan also merits a look any time your financial situation changes significantly.
