Why estate tax planning?

Estate tax planning is very important if you want to maximize your wealth and preserve it for generations. Knowing your potential estate tax liability is an excellent place to start your estate tax plan because it allows you to plan in advance to save on taxes. Understanding state and federal estate taxes, inheritance and gift taxes is an essential part of the estate planning process. Once your basic estate plan is in place, you can assess the need for asset protection planning and other methods of advanced estate planning. What you need to know about taxes:

  • Most simple estates don’t require the filing of a federal estate tax return. As of 2014, a filing is required for estates exceeding $5,340,000.
  • As of January 1, 2005, Nevada no longer assesses a state estate tax.
  • For high net worth individuals, planning ahead can reduce if not eliminate federal estate taxes.
  • Currently, the maximum tax rate for taxable estates is 40%.

Tax Planning is a Must for Large Estates

If you have a large estate, you will want to consider which tax strategies can minimize your exposure to the federal estate tax. There are multiple tools that we can use and once we analyze your assets, values, family dynamics, hopes and dreams, we will be able to craft an estate plan that is right for you.

Rather than having your estate heavily taxed after you die, plan ahead so you can leave the maximum inheritance possible for your loved ones or favorite charitable organizations.
