Congress has provided citizens with so many ways to reduce their estate tax that one Brookings Institution study called the tax “voluntary.”

"No matter how large your estate is, it need not be reduced by estate taxes if you initiate the planning process early. The further in advance that you begin estate tax planning, the easier and less expensive it is to achieve a zero or near-zero taxable estate."


Let Givner & Kaye help you structure your assets so that they are valued for gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer tax purposes to allow the transfer of the most wealth with the least possible tax to your beneficiaries. Our estate tax planning professionals have almost eight decades of experience in preparing thousands of sophisticated tax plans. We know the ins and outs of the Internal Revenue Code, and can show you the kind of advanced estate tax planning strategies that only other professional estate tax planners know about. We will review all of the relevant local and federal estate taxes with you and design a customized estate tax plan to ensure that your assets will be transferred to your heirs with the least possible tax impact.
