Estate Planning for Texans
Estate planning is the process by which people develop a plan that ensures their assets, which they have worked so hard for during their lifetime, are inherited by those they love. An estate planning lawyer who is knowledgeable in estate tax law and the formation of trusts can help you reach this goal. Despite the usefulness of this process, many people still avoid the estate planning process, with or without an attorney, because they do not like thinking 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.
