changes to laws affecting estates and answer viewer questions about planned giving live from the WTVP
Estate planning is a tricky business. Current federal laws, part of the tax cuts championed
by former president George W. Bush in 2001 and extended by President Obama in 2010, are set to expire on
December 31, 2012. If these cuts are not renewed, significant changes for anyone in the process of planning
their estate are on the way. WTVP-Public Media for Central Illinois will tackle these potential changes and
their effects on planned giving in a special live call-in episode of

at 8:30 p.m. on WTVP-HD 47.1 (or check local cable/satellite listings).

discussion, but the calls will be handled privately off air.
