Joshua Rubenstein, Private Wealth practice head and national chair of the Private Client Services group, commented on anticipation for President-elect Donald Trump's estate tax plan. While on the campaign trail, Trump had vowed to eliminate the estate taxes. Josh stated, "I have certainly gotten a ton of calls to ask, 'What does this mean?' The most important thing for clients to do is not run off half-cocked and do something foolish. . . . I happen to think the odds of repealing the estate tax are extremely small. We've had an estate tax for 100 years." He added, "When push comes to shove, I suspect it will be more important to drop the corporate income tax."
