How did the estate and gift tax change in the fiscal cliff deal? P.2

In our last post, we informed our readers about the new gift and estate tax rules that came out of the recent fiscal cliff deal. As we noted, the potential change has been a huge issue in the estate planning world for some time, attorneys not knowing what the future would hold and clients not sure what to do with their wealth. The bottom line is that the system that has been in place over the last two years was extended indefinitely.

Trusts and LLCs in estate planning, P.2

In our last post, we began speaking on how trusts and LLCs can be used for real estate in planning one's estate. The topic is important, as failing to protect one's real estate from lawsuits and probate after one's death can create extra troubles and costs. These can be avoided by prudent use of a trust or LLC.

A recent article out of Vending Times took up the important topic of how to avoid passing your wealth on to the IRS. This is a particularly important issue for those who are wealthy, as they have a greater risk of losing their wealth to various forms of taxation. The topic is worth considering even for less wealthy readers who want to maximize their tax savings.

Estate planning matters women, and men, should know about, P.1

In a recent post entitled "Women and estate planning," we looked at an article written by Deborah Jacobs of Forbes online. The article was about the need for women to become more involved in the estate planning process, not help in the work of planning for the family's future, but also for their own sake. The fact is that women are more likely to see the effects of poor planning than men. And even when the planning is thorough, it isn't always in women's favor.
