Surviving spouses have a new tax saving tool

February 13, 2014

Summary of Rev.Proc. 2014-18

This revenue procedure provides a simplified method for certain taxpayers with spouse deceased in the last three years to obtain an extension of time under § 301.9100-3 of the Procedure and Administration Regulations to make a “portability” election under § 2010(c)(5)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code), by which a decedent’s unused exclusion amount (deceased spousal unused exclusion amount, or DSUE amount) becomes available to apply to the surviving spouse’s subsequent transfers during life or at death.
