All of a client’s assets in which they have an interest, plus all assets owned by them at death, are included in their estate for estate tax purposes (assets in an irrevocable life insurance trust, including life insurance proceeds in which there are no incidents of ownership, will generally not be included in the taxable estate). Estate taxes and other transfer costs generally must be paid before the balance of the estate is distributed to heirs.
Federal estate tax can be the largest transfer cost at death; however, other transfer costs, including debts, state death taxes, funeral and final expenses, probate and administrative fees, and income taxes, may also be incurred.
