BWS Update | January 2017

2017 Estate Planning Guide By Attorney Ryan McNeill We’ve updated our Estate Planning Guide for 2017! How can you limit inheritance tax? Would a trust benefit you? How can you avoid family squabbles after you are gone? Should you give away part of your estate now? Have you thought about digital assets? What is Estate Planning? I don’t have a lot of assets. Why should I speak with an expert? Estate planning involves making reasoned decisions about how the property or monies you own are distributed upon your death. The simplest of estates can become a costly nightmare for survivors when there are no provisions made for an orderly distribution of assets upon death or responsible individuals named to oversee that process. These problems arise at a time when loved ones are least capable of dealing with complicated and messy legal matters while grieving the loss of a family member.
