In many cases the best estate plan is a simple estate plan. As a result of the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the majority of individual estates are not subject to estate tax (for 2018 up to $11.18 million of an individual's assets are exempt from estate tax). However, estate tax laws are subject to change at any time. It is important to review your estate plan on a regular basis and update as necessary.
