The current temporarily high $12.92 million estate and gift tax exemption will “Sunset” on December 31, 2025. Starting January 1, 2026, the exemption is expected to return to approximately $7 million. The loss of approximately $6 million in exemption can result in an additional estate tax in excess of $2.4 million if proper planning is not implemented prior to December 31, 2025.
