Planning For Death Taxes
The earlier you start implementing an estate plan, the better advantage you have. The IRS will want to review your estate at death to ensure you don’t owe a federal estate tax. The amount of taxes owed typically depends on the size of your estate and the details of your specific plan. With proper planning and advice from a trusted legal team, you can take advantage of many effective strategies to reduce or eliminate “death taxes” and keep your assets in the hands of your loved ones.
Whether you need a simple will or a more extensive estate plan to protect your assets from the IRS and creditors, you need an attorney who will ask the right questions, protect your investments, and make sure your property goes to your intended family members. With a Master’s degree in Taxation from the Southern Methodist University and over 30 years of experience, attorney David E. Simmons can offer you the legal guidance you need for creating a comprehensive estate plan.
