Another Estate Tax Bill Introduced

Pending Legislation

On October 15, 2009, Rep. Schrader (D. Oregon) introduced “The Small Business and Family Farm Estate Tax Relief Act of 2009” ( H.R. 3841), which would “repeal carryover basis for decedents dying in 2009, and “increase the estate tax exemption to $5,000,000” and “reduce the maximum estate and gift tax rate to 45 percent” for decedents dying after December 31, 2009.

Trouble is, carryover basis is to apply to decedents dying in 2010, not 2009.  Seems this bill needs to be amended to correct the description of what it would do.
