January 14, 2013 -- This week on For Your Benefit, estate planner Marc Levine joins host Bob Leins to discuss the estate tax and what happened to it while we were looking at the fiscal cliff.

Levine is a principal at Handler and Levine in Bethesda, Md.

Discussion topics include:

  • What is the new federal estate tax law?
  • Does this mean I am paying more or less (or no) estate tax than before the fiscal cliff?
  • Are there state estate taxes?
  • Are there other death taxes I need to know about?
  • What assets are actually taxed?
