    Solutions to Lower or Avoid Estate Taxes

    Our goal is to educate you about how your estate can be minimized by estate and inheritance taxes and how to mitigate this. These strategies can help ensure the maximum amount of your assets are passed to your surviving spouse, family members, and loved ones.

    There are several estate and trust tools we can use to protect your assets. Two common tools include creating an irrevocable trust and charitable gifting.

    An irrevocable trust cannot be modified or terminated without the prior permission of named beneficiaries. This type of trust allows you to place funds or assets into a trust directed to a specific person or persons. Placing most types of assets in an irrevocable trust removes those assets from the taxable estate. When distributed by a trustee, these assets are not subject to taxes.

    Charitable gifting allows you to give your grandchildren or children yearly gifts without being taxed, so long as the gifts follow certain regulations. Yearly gifts under a specific threshold do not need to be reported, nor are they considered taxable income for the child or grandchild. Additionally, covering medical or educational costs for grandchildren is not subject to gift limits.
