Assuring heirs are not overly taxed

When an individual receives a significant amount of money or property, they are likely subject to taxes on that income. There are ways to protect your beneficiaries from this asset transfer, but you need to think strategically to make it happen.

Protecting gifted assets from liquidation

If an heir to an estate receives assets, such as a home or business, that he or she is not prepared to manage and take responsibility for, he or she may be forced to liquidate the assets. You need to assure that when your beneficiaries receive these assets, they will have the tools to maintain them after you are gone.

Common pitfalls such as assumed heir status for spouses and dependents

Many people assume that if they are married and leave their assets to their spouses, they will not be taxed. While this is true in many circumstances, there are various caveats to consider.
