Using an AB bypass trust, they can double the current $675,000 their heirs can inherit tax free on the death of the second spouse.Suggestions: 1) don't let them die this year. Next year and thereafter an indidual resident alien can transfer estate tax free $1,000,000.2) if ill health, etc. make 1) impossible, consider a QDOT, a Qualified DOmestic Trust.3)Make gifts between spouses durind life to keep estate less thn $1,000,000.4) Have the first to die parent leave some to the children.The new tax law has greatly simplified their estate tax problem, and that of most resident aliens.
