Taxable Estate

The value of an individual's estate that is subject to taxation. The taxable estate includes the actual value of the estate and most gifts and transfers made for a certain period of time before death. It is important to note that any assets left to a surviving spouse and all assets under a certain dollar amount (under $1 million, depending on the year) are usually excluded from the taxable estate. See also: Estate tax.
