The 2010 Tax Act re-unified the unified transfer tax.
The U.S. estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer (GST) taxes are a unified transfer tax system, on the transfer of property at death (estate tax); during life (gift tax); and on transfers that skip a generation (GST tax). Under the Tax Act of 2010, U.S. federal estate, gift and GST taxes were reduced to 35% maximum rate with a higher applicable exclusion amount for estate tax, gift tax, GST tax indexed annually for inflation. In 2013, the Tax Act, increased the applicable exclusion amount to $5,250,000 (per individual) and increased the tax to 40% (effective 2013). As of 2017, the amount is $5.49m (per individual).
