IRS Releases 2017 Inflation-Adjusted Estate and Gift Tax Amounts

Updated: Dec 10, 2019

The amount of gifts that may be made in 2017 by one person to another without causing the donor to include some portion in his taxable gifts (the “annual exclusion amount”) will remain at $14,000.

Under the provisions of ATRA, the federal lifetime gift tax exemption has been indexed for inflation and therefore increased from $5,450,000 in 2016 to $5,490,000 million in 2017. Finally, the generation skipping transfer tax exemption has also been indexed for inflation and therefore increased from $5,450,000 in 2016 to $5,490,000 million in 2017.
