By Sarah M. Waelchli, Shannon M. Nelson and Kevin M. Ellis

The new year brings with it new tax-savings opportunities, including larger gift and estate tax exemptions and exclusions. This article includes charts showing these figures for 2022 as well as this year’s federal income tax brackets.  A list of strategies and tips to consider in your tax planning this year follows each chart.

However, this proposal did not become law, and we do not know if any tax reform will be enacted this year. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and report any significant changes. In the meantime, continue reading for the 2022 exemption and exclusions figures.
