When Connecticut residents pass away, their loved ones can be left trying to pick up the pieces and move on. While this entails a great deal of emotional strength, it also involves knowing how to handle the deceased individual's estate.
One of the more complicated areas of handling a deceased individual's estate is in knowing what estate tax, if any, will be assessed. Part of the complication in figuring out the tax implications in a person's estate lies in the ever-changing state and federal laws that dictate how much an estate will be taxed and at what levels. Connecticut's legislature alone has changed the estate tax law multiple times over the years.
