In addition, it provides limited penalty relief to recipients who sold property in 2010 that they acquired from a decedent whose executor elected for the provisions of section 1022 of the Code to apply to such property. Finally, it extends the date to affirmatively allocate the generation-skipping transfer (GST) exemption and provides guidance on the application of the automatic allocation of GST exemption for decedents who died in 2010.
