  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced a multitude of tax year 2018 annual inflation adjustments, including an increase to Section 2503, the federal gift tax exclusion. Section 529A(a)(2) of the Stephen Beck Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act (PL 113-225) specifically ties the annual contribution limit for ABLE accounts to section 2503(b) of the federal tax code, therefore any inflation adjustment to this section automatically adjusts the annual ABLE contribution limit. "Tying these sections together was done by design, so that periodic increases to the federal gift tax exclusion will automatically result in a greater annual contribution limit to ABLE accounts" says Michael Morris of National Disability Institute. Beginning in 2018, each ABLE account will be able to accept up to $15,000 in aggregate annual contributions.
