Estate Planning for Texans
Estate planning helps people create a plan that ensures their assets, which they have worked so hard for during their lifetime, are inherited by those they love. A Dallas estate planning lawyer, who knows estate tax law and how to create trusts, can help you reach this goal. But few people enjoy thinking about the end of their life. So, despite the importance of estate planning, many people put it off because they don’t want to think about death.
The reality of the situation is that without the work of a skilled estate planning attorney, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stands to inherit a large portion of your assets. Fortunately, it is not too late to write the IRS out of your will. There are a number of factors to consider when it comes to estate planning, creating trusts, and ensuring that your loved ones are provided for after you are gone. Remarriage, blended families, and differences in tax laws between states when there are multiple residences all must be part of the estate planning process. A tenured Dallas estate planning attorney likely has experience with all of these issues and can take them in stride.
