Preserve Your Assets For Your Family
You have worked hard to make a good life for yourself and your family. When you pass away, you want your assets to go to your family — not the government. State and federal death taxes can significantly deplete the value of your estate if you do not have an effective estate plan.
Even if you can avoid significant estate taxes, the value of your estate could be depleted by the cost of probate. Even if you have a will, your estate will go through the probate process if you have property titled solely in your name. Through trusts and property transfer devices, our goal is to help you avoid probate and limit your exposure to state inheritance and federal estate taxes.
Federal gift and estate tax exemptions as of Jan. 1, 2019, are permanent, with the exemption of $11.4 million with a yearly adjustment for inflation.
With Congress establishing an $11 million-plus exemption, this is the time to prepare your estate plan. A fully funded trust can pass to your children or grandchildren up to $11.4 million tax-free, with no probate fees.
