George Lucas was likely motivated by the looming 2013 tax increases when he chose to sell LucasFilm in 2012, according to this Wall Street Journal Article.

Image via Wikipedia On December 13, 2010, the Senate voted to end debate on the Reid bill. The final vote was 83 to 15. This vote suggests that the Obama-Republican compromise will probably pass the Senate. The bill will then head to the House, where many House Democrats are protesting primarily because of the estate tax provisions ($35% tax rate, $5 million exemption, for two years) and other tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. To some observers, the 35% estate tax rate and $5 million… [read post]

The article states that S. 3533 is the best proposal and is the "most fiscally responsible estate tax proposal introduced during this Congress." (I described the… [read post]

The 2012 Taxpayer Relief Act ushered in many new tax laws. Among them, IRC Section 402A(c)(4)(E) now permits in-plan ROTH rollovers.

Previously, if you held assets in a 401(k) plan and you were under the age of 59 1/2, you were unable to transfer some or all of your plan assets to a Roth plan under the 401(k) plan.
