One important element to keep in mind is estate taxes, especially in Illinois, taxes are not a straight percentage of your estate value. Rather, estate tax rates are established in a graduated system. Given the value of a taxable estate, there are base taxes paid that start at $0 for an estate value within $40,000 or as high as $1,082,800 for an estate value of at least $10.04 million. After the base taxes are computed, the marginal rate is applied.
Another tax due is the deceaseds right to award their estate to their heir/s is the federal estate tax. This offers a higher exemption of $12.06 million in 2022. With the appropriate legal steps, married couples can protect their estate up to $24.12 million.
