I would like to thank those individuals and businesses who helped organize ] What you need to know about estate taxes By Liz Beckman of Minnesota Society of .Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA) If you are handling the disposition of an estate, you are probably already aware that there was an unexpected reprieve from taxes on the estates of those who died in 2010. But if you're involved in future estate planning for a loved one or yourself, it's important to know that high estate tax rates have come back in force this year and beyond. The Minnesota Society of CPAs (MNCPA) offers a rundown on some of the complexities of estate tax issues. A one-year hiatus Congress allowed the federal estate tax law to expire for 2010, meaning no taxes were due on the estates of anyone who died in 2010. That was good news for the families of numer- ous famous people--including New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner--but it also meant many families at the more modest end of the income scale did not have to deal with estate taxes. In addition, the executors of estates of those who died last year did not have to file a tax return for the dece- dent's estate with the Internal Revenue Service. Are you aware of all the assets that are part of your estate? Many individuals do not understand what kinds of assets make up their estates. Many people have a miscon- ception that their estate consists sole- ly of cash in their bank account. They may be in for an unpleasant surprise, however, if they don't consider the current value of all the assets in their estate. A parent who did not have a lot of cash on hand may have owned a home that has increased substantially in value over the years, especially if it's located in an area with high or ris- ing property values. Add in the value of a retirement account savings or other assets and the total may quickly jump to more than $5 million. That may also be the case with a small business that family members built from scratch into a thriving enterprise, especially if the company owns valu- able property or equipment. In addi- tion, while an estate may not be sub- ject to a Federal estate tax, the estate's executor may still have to pay an estate tax at the state level, depending upon the appropriate state's laws. Your CPA can help you in the accounting and valuation of your estate to determine whether your situ- ation calls for undertaking some tax- savvy estate planning for both Federal and state purposes. The tax burden returns On Dec. 17, 2010, President Obama signed into law the "Tax Relief Act of 2010." In this bill, Congress reinstated the estate tax for decedents dying after Dec. 3 I, 2009. The new rules are only temporary and will sunset on Dec. 31, 2012. Executors of deceased taxpayers must pay taxes on an estate over $5 million (there are considerations for surviving spouses, which should be discussed with your CPA). The estate tax will be based on the new 35 percent top rate. In light of the rules that were in effect prior to the "Tax Relief Act of 2010," Congress afforded executors of decedents dying after Dec. 31, 2009 and before Jan. 1,201 I--such as the Steinbrenner Estate--the option to elect to not come under this newly revived estate tax. In this case, the estate would pay no estate tax as originally described above, but bene- ficiaries would be subject to the mod- ified carryover basis rules. A CPA can help Estate taxes are complicated, so it's wise to consult with a CPA about 'long-term estate plans. Turn to your CPA with all your questions about estate tax planning or any other finan- cial concern. The Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA) serves the public interest by advancing the highest standards of ethics and practice within the CPA profession. MNCPA delivers on that promise by offering extensive continuing pro- fessional education and resources; advocating for members and the public with regulatory agen- cies and boards; and reentering and encouraging the CPAs and business leaders of tomorrow. Founded in 1904, MNCPA's 9,400 members work in public accounting, business and industry, government and education. To locate a CPA, visit I Rep. Falk column The news that Lac Qui Parle County in Western Minnesota has the state's healthiest residents is pleasing, but no't surprising. I am proud to ;'tepreser/t such a strong county in the Minnesota House of Representatives. The study across Minnesota's 87 counties was conducted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. It measured the rate of residents who died before age 75, the percentage of residents who self- reported their health as fair or poor, how many days residents reported being in poor physical health and poor mental health, and the rate of low- birthweight infants. Minnesotans as a whole are active and engaged. I am pleased that our part of the state is the best among the best. As always, on these issues and the any others confronting us this legislative session, I'd appreciate your input.
