Good article. A minor correction is the name of the act, which is the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. I would enjoy a follow-up article on the act's effect on widows and widowers. That is, what happens to a widow with $5m to $8m, and whose deceased spouse has an old trust funded with a $1.5m exemption at death, plus the taxable growth since then?

I must agree with you: the article is really awesome, so many useful and interesting stuff in it. To bad that the process might be too complicated. I like all of your articles! My parents (I have showed them this site) and I are your biggest fans. You do a great work to help to deal better with personal finances. A lot of your advices helped prevent me from one hour payday loans and other ways of borrowing cash. Thanx a lot for your job!
