We keep our clients informed of opportunities to reduce the tax on their estate. For example, many of our clients are pleased to find out that the tax code allows people to set up charitable remainder trusts and set up qualified personal residence trusts to own their personal residence, yet leave it to their children without estate tax. We might also advise clients in certain situations to establish a life insurance trust could be used to pay estate taxes, because the United States tax code does not tax life insurance proceeds as income (i.e., the trust is used to own the life insurance policy and it must be irrevocable to avoid inclusion in the estate).

  • Community/marital property agreements
  • Conservatorship avoidance
