Maintaining your estate taxes could easily go off the rails without a professional tax provider helping you, especially since an estate tax is imposed on your property after you are gone for the privilege of being able to pass them on. Also, since taxes are based on the excess value of the entire value of your estate and, thus, are usually assessed on a sliding basis, it is perennially subject to changes. Moreover, the tax rate for Maryland has graduated, starting at 8% and maxes at 16% based on the size of your estate.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, for instance, doubled the exemption in 2018.
That is why having a professional tax services provider like us at FRED Tax Services is not only important but also inevitable if you want to guarantee that everything will run smoothly when you are gone.
