It’s important to address the 3.8% net investment income tax (NIIT) in your estate plan, because it can erode your earnings from interest, dividends, capital gains and other investments, leaving less for your heirs. The NIIT applies to individuals with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) over $200,000.
