Use TurboTax 2016 for keeping up to date with current tax law changes.

Tax changes for 2017 and 2018 were signed into law by the President. These tax law changes for the up-coming tax season include:

  • Income and Deductions: Income tax rates are expected to remain the same for the most part with minor adjustments.

    • A New Portability Law will allow the executor of a deceased spouses estate to transfer any unused exemption to the surviving spouse. This new law is effective for the new tax season.

    • Asset Allocation: Since income tax rates will see little change, it's wise to look at investing in asset classes that provide tax preferential treatment like qualified dividend income and long-term equities.

  • Estate Tax Exemption Increase: An estate tax exemption increase will help exclude a significant amount of assets from federal estate taxes. Beware, there may be a significant disparity between states estate tax exemptions.

  • Estate, Gift and GST Taxes and Tax Exemption: A reduction in rates for estate, gift and GST taxes allows more assets to pass to non-charitable beneficiaries. The GST tax exemption increases to the estate tax exemption amount.
