I see many discussions about Estate taxes, but my big question is never answered.
Question: Is my estate tax exemption based on before income tax dollars or after income tax dollars?
Most of my cash estate will be in IRA's where I pay income tax as the cash is withdrawn.

In other words, which comes first...income taxation then estate tax exemption from the tax paid amount, then estate taxation on the remainder.
Or is it estate tax exemption, then estate taxation on the remainder followed by income taxation on the remainder. Anyone know the answer? eagleputt68
