Estate tax.

If you are single, this is the estate tax payable at your death. If you are married and the two of you leave all of your property to each other, this is the estate tax payable at the second death.


WARNING: This calculator cannot be used as a substitute for legal or tax advice. The calculator assumes that you die in 2015 with the current $5.43M exemption and make no significant lifetime gifts. If you are married, this calculator assumes that you and your spouse each own half of every asset. The calculator makes other important and potentially incorrect assumptions about your estate, and only applies to federal estate tax only. The tax due in any given case may be substantially higher or lower than is shown above, and may vary depending on your state of residence.
