Tools in the Box
Estate planning requires a comprehensive approach to build unique solutions for unique situations. Here are some of the tools that can be used in your estate planning.
The revocable living trust is a great estate planning vehicle. Trusts aren't just for millionaires anymore. Families of all means can take advantage of a revocable living trust to avoid probate, exercise greater control, and unify their estate planning.
As the saying goes, "death and taxes." Estate planning admits the truth to the former, but there are specific strategies that can be used to minimize tax liabilities involved with estates: ordinary income, capital gains, gift, and estate taxes.
The tried and true staple of estate planning. A will can be particularly effective because it works in conjunction with the courts through the probate process, which has the authority to distribute or preserve any asset.
Good estate planning doesn't just plan for death. Powers of attorney make sure there is someone you trust to make decisions for you even if you aren't able to when you're still alive.
