An estate exceeding the federal estate tax exemption deserves careful planning to take advantage of legal maneuvers which are permitted under the law to minimize the tax burden on the estate. In preparation for an estate planning consultation, it is desirable to know the identity and titling of all assets and approximation of the fair market value and any liens on any asset and have a basic concept of your desires regarding the disposition of your estate. Federal and State estate tax law is a changing situation and requires periodic review. A properly drafted Last Will and Testament is essential in your estate plan. A Last Will and Testament allows you to select and identify the person who will manage your estate and provide specific instructions regarding the division of your assets when you no longer need them. The best time to prepare a Last Will and Testament is long before you are ill or dependent upon the care of others.
