The 2020-2021 Treasury-IRS Guidance Plan, issued on November 17, 2020, is a compilation and update of the guidance projects the Treasury and the IRS have intended to focus on from July 2020 through June 2021. It includes a report of important clarifications made in 2020 regarding the deductibility of estate and trust expenses. It also anticipates guidance on the consistency of basis of assets received from a decedent, the effect on estate tax value of changes made to an asset within six months after a decedent’s death, the issuance of estate tax closing letters, and the possibly imminent new actuarial tables to be effective as of May 1, 2019.
