Portability allows a surviving spouse to retain the deceased spouse’s unused estate and gift tax exemption. Given this year’s great political uncertainty, the portability election may be more important than ever before. Advisors must refresh their understanding of portability in order to help clients who may have an estate tax obligation unexpectedly thrust upon them.
During his webinar, Bob will cover the following topics:

• Estate tax consequences of electing portability

• Rev. Proc. 2022-32 – late election relief
