The vast majority of retired individuals may not owe estate taxes at the federal level given the recent changes to the federal exemption under the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, however, some states will still take a bite of your pie. When it comes to both estate and retirement planning, the state you choose to retire in should play a major factor in determining how much of a legacy you want to leave to your heirs.
