Planning Idea With New $5 Million Gift Tax Exemption

The tax bill enacted at the end of 2010 provides a $5 million exemption from federal gift tax for aggregate lifetime gifts ($10 million for a married couple). This exemption applies for 2011 and 2012, and is in addition to the $13,000 annual exclusion gifts that may be made free of federal gift tax every year.
