Executive Estate Planning

Timothy Golas has these helpful ideas on executive estate planning – how should a business owner or executive do their estate plan.

Some key takeaways:

  • Who are you beneficaries are – life insurance, 401(k)s, bank accounts, etc (beneficiary designations trump your will when they conflict)
  • How does your stock pass – including stock options and equity compensation plans
  • Trust or no trust? Avoiding probate might be good, or a Will might work just fine
  • U.S. and State Estate Taxes? Kansas and Missouri residents only have U.S. estate taxes, not state estate taxes
