Erbschaftssteuerfreibetrag für überlebende Ehepartner
Explanation:
siehe erste link....

"The unified system within the tax code meant that people could dispose of up to $675,000 (in 2001) in the form of taxable gifts during their lifetimes and bequests at death without having their estates subject to the tax. An annual $10,000-per-recipient gift tax exclusion ($20,000 for joint gifts) was allowed for additional distributions of wealth without incurring any federal gift taxes. The old law also contained a 100 percent marital exclusion for transfers of wealth between husband and wife."

Versus "marital deduction" (zweite link): "Marital Deduction
Verringerung der Bemessungsgrundlage der estate tax um Vermögensgegenstände, die auf den überlebenden Ehegatten (surviving spouse) übertragen werden; siehe estate tax.
Anmerkung: Die marital deduction gilt grundsätzlich nur für überlebende Ehegatten, die US-Bürger sind. Dies soll verhindern, daß der ausländische Ehegatte durch Rückkehr in sein Heimatland bewegliches Vermögen des Erblassers endgültig der Besteuerung in den USA entziehen kann. Zu Ausnahmen siehe qualified domestic trust (QDOT). Die marital deduction ist für Zuwendungen an deutsche Ehegatten rückwirkend durch das Revisionsprotokoll 1998 zum Erbschaftsteuer-DBA wiedereingeführt worden."
