Hello everyone today's video discussion is going to be on the matter of gift taxes and estate taxes now as the estate tax arena is rather complicated I am going to do my best in this video to shed some light on some of the matters that I think will be of importance to you when dealing with gift and estate taxes or estate taxes first of all let me mention that for a broad overview you can refer to the IRS Publication 959 5 0 in that publication you should find information that will be beneficial to you in regards to gift and estate taxes now for tax year 2012 that's the year that you're filing tax returns for this year 2013 in the tax year 2012 the annual gift tax exclusion amount was $13,000 and the lifetime gift tax exclusion amount was 5 million 120 thousand dollars now what does all of this mean the Ariel gift tax exclusion amount basically states or basically means that a u.s. person could gift another person a maximum amount of $13,000 without creating a taxable event as for the lifetime exclusion gift tax exclusion amount it was five million one hundred and twenty thousand dollars what that meant was that an individual could have gifted away five million one hundred and twenty thousand dollars without creating a taxable event meaning having to pay taxes on it how is this possible it's possible due to the unified gift tax credit and you will find more information regarding the unified gift tax credit in the IRS Publication 959 5-0 okay so those were the numbers for tax year 2012 well for tax year 2013 those numbers have changed the tax rates have been indexed for inflation so for tax year 2013 the annual exclusion amount is now $14,000 and the lifetime exclusion amount is five million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars again this is a rather complicated area and to try to break it down for you I'd be sitting here for probably a few hours and and then you probably still wouldn't get it so I'm trying to summarize this as best as I can to at least give you a starting point now as for estate taxes again you can refer to the IRS Publication 950 but I do want to mention a few things in regards to closing out an estate when someone passes away it's not just they cut and dry easy go file the last tax return type of deal it could be that way if the estate if if a person did not have an estate if the person did not have any assets then it's fairly easy to deal with a decedent matters upon their death but when you're dealing with individuals who have or who had assets prior to their death it gets a bit more complicated for a states that had gross income of $600 or more when a person dies the executor or the fiduciary or the authorized representative they are responsible for filing a form 1041 and that is a tax return for estate and Trust also note that as the executor or the authorized representative you may also have to complete the IRS form 56 which is the notice of baidu she airy relationship even though you may have a general power of attorney...
