Palm Beach Estate Tax Attorney

What is an estate tax?

Some states require payment of an estate tax upon an individual's death. In the state of Florida, the estate tax was eliminated on December 31, 2004. Prior to its abolition, the estate tax - also frequently referred to as the "pick up," death, or inheritance tax - took a certain amount from a deceased Florida resident's total estate before the remaining assets could be transferred to an heir or disbursed among multiple beneficiaries.

The following list includes are important facts regarding estate taxes:

  • There are federal estate taxes and they can be quite confiscatory.
  • If you plan ahead you may be able to completely avoid these taxes.
  • Federal estate taxes are considered "voluntary," they can be avoided or eliminated with proper planning.
