You may not realize it, but you have an estate! Your estate consists of everything you own, including your car(s), home(s), furniture, jewelry, real estate, land, investments, checking & savings accounts, personal possessions, cash, investments, retirement accounts and more. As part of your estate, these assets are all things that you may want to hand down to your children and other heirs. However, if you do not engage in thorough estate planning with a genuine estate planning professional your heirs may end up owing an extraordinary amount of estate taxes! Don’t wait until you retire to start your estate planning, and don’t do it just once. Estate planning is an ongoing process, and your estate plan must be reviewed and updated as your facts and financial situation (and the laws governing estate taxes) change throughout your life.
