Estate tax laws are constantly changing; when those changes occur, it is vital to speak with a lawyer. Recent changes to estate tax laws have made future rates, exemptions and other tax conditions easier to predict, which provides a great opportunity to secure plans for your family and loved ones.
However, laws are not set in stone. That is why establishing a trusting, professional relationship with an attorney can help prevent tax-law changes from causing unnecessary impacts. It is important that the attorney takes the time to know you and your wishes when reviewing or creating an estate plan. When reviewing your estate plans and considering tax impacts, I will consider several assets and factors, including:
- Real estate
- Life insurance plans
- Business worth
- Income payable after death
- Distributions from pensions
- Available tax exemptions
- The impact of inflation on tax rates
If you own a business, it is especially important to ensure that you know the true value of the business to determine if an estate tax plan should be incorporated with your estate planning. Do not risk receiving improper valuation or overlooking assets; every individual and family is unique, and I will work closely with you to establish confidence and comfort with your legal decisions.
