Estate and Tax Planning
Estate Planning can be as complicated or as simple as you want. Working with an experienced Financial Planner in estate and tax planning can help you “uncomplicate” the process. Estate and tax planning is an ongoing process. Life changes continue to occur so periodically updating an existing estate plan makes sense. One of the areas of concern in effective estate planning is understanding how to protect your assets from excess taxation. Another vital area is how will your assets be distributed in the estate.
Communication between family members is important. Having a trustful and confidential financial planner to understand the family situation can be useful in sorting out how assets can be passed down to beneficiaries. Tools like the Estate Checklist will greatly help you understand how you want to handle important issues in your estate plan.
