In an article published by Bloomberg BNA on Dec. 28, 2016, Scot Kirkpatrick offers guidance to the questions that remain for President-elect Trump’s estate tax plans. The article details President-elect Trump’s promise to introduce a tax overhaul plan, and also recognizes the questions that wealth planners have before the repeal can become reality. Kirkpatrick emphasizes that – regardless of what the new laws are – everyone should be prepared for the possibility of facing an estate tax in the future. “If history shows anything, the pendulum’s going to swing back the other way at some point. It may be another decade, or another two or three, but it’s coming back,” explains Kirkpatrick.
