Tax Note:  An estate tax charitable deduction may not be relevant for people whose estates are worth less than the federal estate tax exemption amount. Under current law, through 2025 the federal exemption is temporarily set at $11,180,000 for individuals and $22,360,000 for a married couple, subject to indexing. In 2026, the exemption reverts to $5,000,000 for individuals and $10,000,000 for a married couple, subject to cumulative indexing from 2012 forward. Estate tax imposed at the state level (currently in CT, DC, HI, IL, MA, MD, ME, MN, NY, OR, RI, VT, WA) may also be a consideration. You should consult your own qualified financial and legal advisors to learn how the laws apply in your particular circumstances.
