Handling Complex Estate Tax Matters
Efficient Transfer Of Wealth
A major consideration in estate planning are the tax consequences. Passing on wealth in one manner will have very different consequences than passing on the same wealth in a different manner. Passing on wealth in a way that minimizes tax consequences is an important consideration in establishing a comprehensive estate plan.
