What about Smaller Estates?
Planning opportunities exist for estates of all sizes:
- Create an estate plan;
- Review your existing estate plan now with your advisors to be sure tax law changes have not altered it;
- Estate taxes may come into play in 2013;
- Consider using the annual gift tax exclusion, which allows everyone to transfer up to $13,000 to as many family members and friends as he/she wishes.
Throughout the years, estate gifts of all sizes have contributed substantially to Hamilton’s endowment, providing much-needed funds for scholarship aid, faculty support and improved academic facilities. In honor of Hamilton’s bicentennial, the College hopes to enroll 200 new Joel Bristol Associates.
