If Your Assets Might Be Subject to Estate Tax

Depending on your net worth at the time of your death, your assets might be subject to a federal or state estate tax.  Estate taxes can take a significant bite out of your assets, leaving less than you had hoped for the people, charities, and pets that you care about.

A good estate planner can help you determine if you are likely to be subject to federal and/or state estate tax and, if so, what you can do to minimize those taxes.  Estate planners have many tools at their disposal to mitigate the sting of estate taxes; a good attorney will be able to identify and explain the techniques that might work best for you, given your own unique set of circumstances.
