IRS Agrees to No "Clawback" in Federal Tax Exemption

 

Finally clearing up an area of great concern to many tax practitioners that practice in estates, the IRS just recently announced that it will not “clawback” any of the unified credit an individual uses  of their current $11+ million individual estate exemption when it reverts back to its $5mm level (indexed for inflation) .

For many KN+S higher net worth clients, this was a major concern. The issue was that if someone used this $11mm exemption early during the current year to gift assets away to their heirs, the concern was that in 2026, when it is earmarked to decrease back down to $5mm, they would have to pay back that amount somehow to the government.  The new IRS ruling that just came out clarifies this is not the case now.  So if you are considering doing some major estate planning, this means that you will want to do it soon. There are creative ways that you can maintain flexibility and control of assets but still move the assets out of your estate if you have concerns about the $5mm threshold. This makes legacy planning for the coming generations all the more important now.
