Table of Estate Tax Rates

The table of estate tax rates below shows the amount of assets you are allowed transfer at your death tax-free. This amount is known as the Lifetime Exemption (or Credit). The value of your estate over and above your estate tax exemption is called your Adjusted Taxable Estate, or ATE. The tax rate for the ATE has been decreasing over the past decade, and now sits at 40%.
