Your Guides For Estate Planning And Tax Matters

Part of your estate planning will be considering how to minimize taxes. Our attorneys consider all potential taxation, and strive to minimize it. Possible taxes include:

  • Federal estate taxes
  • State estate taxes
  • State inheritance taxes
  • Capital gains taxes
  • Decedent's income taxes

An inexperienced attorney may think he or she is saving you taxes in one area, but the end result is that taxes are increased in another. For example, if a low appraisal is achieved on a piece of real estate, the estate tax can be minimized. But when the beneficiaries sell it for a higher price, there may be capital gains which are due that exceed the estate tax savings.
