Helping You Plan For The Future Of Your Estate
Estate planning can be a challenging process both emotionally and financially. If your loved one passes away without wills, trusts or other plans in place, that challenge can be even greater. Having an experienced attorney by your side as you explore your legal options can help protect your interests and prepare for the future.
At Bendure & Thomas, our attorneys have navigated the complexities of tax law for more than four decades. This extensive experience gives us the skill and knowledge necessary to help you create an estate plan that provides for your loved ones and protects your assets or to make the inheritance process smoother during a difficult time.
Exploring Options That Will Protect Your Assets
While the primary concern of those planning their estate is often the fate of their assets, tax concerns are an aspect of estate planning that can be as significant as distributing property. Our experienced tax attorneys can ensure that you know the legal requirements for both state estate and federal estate taxes, gift, and generation-skipping tax issues.
We will guide you through the different options available to you, including wills and trusts as well as other documentation like establishing power of attorney or a health care directive. Together we will build an estate plan that ensures your estate is managed according to your wishes, simplifies the process for your loved ones and minimizes the impact of taxes on inheritance.
For estates that are already in probate, we can guide you through the probate process and offer guidance on the tax requirements before you. We will help you avoid unnecessary tax expenses and help make this legal process easier during a difficult time.
