Plan Now to Save Taxes in 2012 and 2013

As uncertainty continues its grip on the estate planning landscape, here is some practical advice on what you can do before the end of the year to lessen the sting of anticipated tax increases in 2013:

Take income now. Deferring income used to be a given, but since tax rates will likely increase after Jan. 1, 2013, many tax experts are suggesting you receive bonuses and other income before the end of 2012 to save on taxes.

Take capital gains now. Taxes on capital gains are expected to rise next year, so you may want to sell appreciated real estate or stock this year.

Think about a dynasty trust. A dynasty trust preserves principal while delaying the payment of estate taxes for future generations, giving them more time to plan and helping preserve your principal now and protecting it against creditors.

Think about a charitable remainder trust. By contributing appreciated assets to a charitable remainder trust this year, you avoid capital gains tax and still provide an income stream for you and your beneficiaries.
