Regardless of how you view the recent election of Donald J. Trump, most of us would agree that it will be a brand new day in Washington as of January 20, 2017.
Although no one knows exactly what the new President or his Congress will do with regards to an estate and/or gift tax repeal or changes to the capital gains laws, it is more important than ever that you have a plan in place that is nimble enough to address these changes, whatever they might be.
So, why not wait for certainty, you ask? Because there is no such thing. Just as Donald Trump may change every executive order written by President Obama with the simple stroke of his pen, so too are changes to our laws an inevitable part of life in these United States. Waiting for certainty is not the answer. We don't know if we will have the time or the mental capacity to make a plan when we have demonstrable proof that we need one.
