The perils of income taxes when properties are gifted

The holiday season and first of the year are when many people think about how to position themselves to pass on their property when they pass away. With the fear of massive estate taxes looming, some people may consider gifting their property through existing laws in order to spare their beneficiaries the financial pain of paying taxes.

How should you deal with a tormentor's death?

It may seem tempting to attend the funeral of someone who brought nothing but pain, frustration and despair to your life, so that you have the opportunity to say exactly how you felt about the person and let everyone know about it before saying a final goodbye to that person. While it is certainly not unheard of for people to do this, penning a harsh obituary is out of the ordinary.

Smooth estate administration involves more than the plan itself

A thorough estate plan covers every detail and includes strategic contingencies. But even the best laid plans can result in problems during the administration of an estate when expectations don't align. A lot of estate conflicts arise when beneficiaries either expect or assume that their parents have made certain decisions regarding their inheritance.

Why college students should consider estate planning

Two months into their college experience, many college freshmen have no concept of estate planning. After all, their priorities are vastly different from those nearing retirement age, or people who are in the prime of their careers.
