Conrad Teitell, a noted tax and non-profit lawyer, has these helpful tips to remind people that while a good estate plan will minimize or completely avoid taxes for your and your family, estate planning is about more much than taxes. I would add that consulting with an estate planning attorney is crucial. Any adult with any complexity in their life (married, divorced, kids, grandkids, house, more than $50,000 in assets, business interests, life insurance, IRAs, favorite charities or college, anticipated inheritance, etc) needs to talk with a lawyer about their estate plan.
Every adult needs a will and/or trust, a living will, and durable financial and medical powers of attorney. Our law firm’s estate planning documents include digital estate planning provisions (for email, social media, digital photos, online banking, and more) standard. While digital estate planning is a cutting edge field and certainly not included in most online legal services or other one-size-fits-all forms, at Johnson Law KC LLC, we listen to your needs and provide custom tailored solutions that will protect you and your family for generations to come. Give us a call (913-707-9220) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a free 1/2 hour consultation on your estate plan.
