Pet Trusts

Americans love pets. But pets are an often overlooked part of an estate plan. A pet trust can help ensure your furry friend is well cared for if something happens to you. And if a pet trust isn’t in the cards, a basic will or power of attorney provision providing for your pet is a wise idea.

Update Your Estate Plan

If you already have an estate plan, great work! As this post from our friends at UMB reminds, be sure your estate plan is updated for your needs and current life situation. 8 things might require an estate plan update: (1) taxes, (2) marriage, (3) family changes, (4) moving to another state, (5) beneficiary designations, (6) overall financial picture/health, (7) charitable goals, (8) tying up loose ends/due diligence.

Trust Taxes

Trusts are a crucial estate planning tool and great way to avoid probate for families, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. But taxes can complicate great trusts. How do you use trusts to reduce (or eliminate) state and federal estate, gift, GST, and income taxes? I recently enjoyed presenting a session at the Trusts From A-Z conference where we explored how to usie trusts to reduce taxes. Check out the trust tax materials here for free, courtesy of NBI.
