New Tax Laws Preempt Existing Trusts Tax

/PRNewswire/ -- Late Friday afternoon, Congress enacted the most sweeping change in the estate tax law in 29 years. The new law contains some good news for the very wealthy, but it also makes most estate plans obsolete. Everyone who has a living trust (family trust) should update it promptly.

Tax lawyer and estate planning expert Robert F. Klueger notes that, "At a minimum, the new law requires every married couple who wrote an estate planning trust to have that trust reviewed, and perhaps modified. If not, many people will learn that their trust doesn't reduce their taxes but can indeed increase their tax liability."

Klueger & Stein, LLP has prepared a short video featuring Robert F. Klueger that reviews the changes to the estate tax law and how it impacts existing estate plans, with suggestions as to how these plans can be modified. The video can be viewed free of charge at or
