Naples, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/14/2014 -- In a bold move to help the nation’s wealthiest families, estate tax expert and author E. Michael Kilbourn has released Disinherit the IRS: Don’t Die Until You’ve Read This Book, 2014 Edition. The 344-page book reveals new tactics to avoid excessive taxation plus the simple, legal ways to avoid so-called “death taxes” and the steps individuals must take to protect their children, grandchildren and future heirs from predators, claims from lawsuits and divorce. The book includes over 60 charts, graphs, illustrations and tables, as well as helpful resources to fully explain its wealth preservation concepts.
“I couldn’t just let the book sit on the shelf the way it was written,” says Kilbourn, a chartered financial consultant who is licensed in over 20 states. “The subject is too important to ignore as we recover from one of the worst financial collapses of our time. Things have changed and it’s more important than ever to understand how to protect and grow what wealth survived so it can sustain and impact future generations.”
The book’s 2014 edition is ratified with legal insight from contributing editor and estate planning attorney Brad A. Galbraith. Also included are new estate tax tables, an easy-to-understand summary of the Final Regulations for IRA distributions; and real-world examples based on current tax rates, exemptions, and exclusions.

Disinherit the IRS garnered great attention when it was originally published and Kilbourn was a frequent guest on several major news network shows including Bloomberg Television to discuss the book’s material and share predictions on how Congress would address the estate tax law in the future.
“I predicted Congress wouldn’t eliminate estate taxes as the law appeared to suggest in 2010 and I was right,” said Kilbourn. “There is no such thing as tax elimination; only tax substitution or tax modification. Since I made that prediction 10 years ago, we’ve seen individual states try to recoup the progressive revenue loss by enacting their own state estate tax and, since the federal government did not eliminate it, for 2014, the federal estate tax rate is now at 40 percent for estates over $5.34 million.”
A leading authority on estate planning, Kilbourn’s reputation was built on studying and testing a multitude of financial products and outcomes based on performance and return as well as mastering the art of estate tax analysis. For this reason, over 75 percent of the book’s original content was updated to reflect new changes in the estate planning process.
