Two stories in which the author's speculate on what Congress will do about the federal estate tax.  The first is “Be prepared for return of estate tax” which states “There’s never really a bad time to do estate planning. But in the months ahead, you may have an extra incentive to look at your estate plans. Why? Because changes are coming to estate tax laws — so you’ll want to be ready.”  The second article is “Congress likely to punt on estate tax until fall – or later,” which starts: “But reversion to 55% tax and $1M exemption not seen as likely.”
