Version History

Version 2021.00 (Released 02/26/2021)

  • §1.401(a)(9) table updated to reflect changes for 2022+ (RMDs).
  • Estate Tax library calculations have been updated for 2021.
  • AFR: the popup form that shows the historical AFR and §7520 rates now has 2 buttons that appear.  One is for manually downloading the AFR file, and the other is a FAQ regarding AFR topics.
  • New Release Information: a new link can be found under the "Help" menu.  This new feature pulls up a list of items that have changed for the given version.  By default, the program will load this screen when you run the program.  You can turn this off by unchecking a box near the bottom of the form.
  • AFR: Edit Menu - a new section has been added to help with AFR issues.
  • Modified the Summary report to illustrate charitable bequests from the Calculation Assumptions screen.
  • Calculation Assumptions screen: when prior taxable gifts were entered, it was assumed that the Deceased Spousal Unused Exclusion was based on the Prior Adjustable Gifts always utilizing the maximum Unified Credit allowed.  This is the case for most case analyses, but the program now adjusts the DSUE based on the taxable gifts in line with the Unified Credit entered on this screen.
  • Analysis of Taxes at Death Report - a few additional result entries have been added to show the flow of taxes.
  • The Open and Save icons on the speed bar were disconnected.  The user had to use the "File" menu or F2/F3 in order to use those functions.  This has been resolved.

Version 2020.01 (Released 09/03/2020)

  • The Current Will and Asset Arrangement report did not include inheritance tax calculations for inheritance class states.  The reports after this did include the inheritance tax computations.

Version 2020.00 (Released 02/04/2020)

  • RMD calculations have been updated for SECURE Act 2019
  • Installation - a file association has been set for the program.
  • Income and Estate Tax adjustments for 2020
  • Alert system in place when a new version has been released
  • Brentmark News Channel added.
  • Bug - when a file is generated with a "Married" client when you switch to "Single," there was an issue of an asset that was under the 'Married' that showed up under a 'Single' Asset list analysis (notably, a second to die insurance).  This was a display issue only, not a calculation issue.
  • Several other minor issues were resolved.
