Use gift tax exemptions to reduce your taxable estate

As you begin to work out how to disperse your estate both throughout your life and after yours away, a well-balanced estate plan is exceptionally useful. Estate planning, in part, helps ensure that you do not sacrifice more of your estate to various taxes than you have to. One of the essential things that you should take into account is the amount of value that an individual may give away through gifting, tax free, throughout one's lifetime or after.

What estate planning issues face newlyweds?

If you and the one you love are approaching marriage, or recently married, you have some very important legal steps to consider. Estate planning may already be on your radar, but by the time you marry your spouse, it is time to start putting plans into action to create a safer, more prosperous future together.

Protect your animal companion with a pet trust

If you have a furry friend who depends on you, or one with feathers or scales for that matter, you may worry about how your pet will continue to receive what they need after you are gone. Many pet owners inaccurately believe that writing provisions for a pet into their will is enough to guarantee their ongoing care, but this is not always true. If you need to make sure that your pet truly has what it needs after you are gone, you may want to consider a pet trust.

Can I place conditions on gifts in a will?

Writing a will is a very important, delicate task. Wills hold great power and help your loved ones understand your wishes for your end of life options and your estate, but they are not magical documents that fix everything. In fact, some of the most common problems that arise with wills are the result of poor understanding of what a will should and should not do.

Pour-over wills in estate planning

When creating your estate plan, there are a number of very useful tools that you can employ to protect your property and legacy. In a best-case-scenario, your plan will use several different tools and piece them together so that they work in concert to maximize your benefits and protection. One very useful estate planning tool that works with other protective estate planning products is a pour-over will.
