When preparing an estate plan, it is important to consider potential income and estate tax consequences. Fortunately, most people will not have to pay estate tax because the current amount that can be passed estate tax-free in 2013 is 5 million dollars. Most of us will not have that much money to pass to loved ones when we die.
