When does estate planning involve tax planning?
Everything that you own in your name is included in your estate for estate tax. Additionally, property you exercise substantial dominion and control over will also be included. Quite surprisingly, even income tax exempt assets are included. This is an important issue that requires consulting a professional. The estate tax threshold is always changing so there is little certainty in this arena. The rates have been in the 50%+ rate area. Given how avoidable and financially devastating it can be to be unprepared, one should think of an estate planning attorney as an investment.. What you can do is plan while there is certainty. You can also take advantage of the flexibility that planning tools provide so your plan adapts with the changes.
