In 2017, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. And with his presidency is certain to come major changes that could affect your estate planning. Trump, for example, made it very clear during his presidential campaign that he would repeal the so-called "death tax." Trump also talked about making other changes that could, for example, change the way capital gains are taxed. And because the Republican majority in the Senate also tend to favor these actions, it's very possible that many of these changes could actually occur.
