Your Legacy "Give them enough to do something, but not enough to do nothing." --- Warren Buffet When it comes to your estate plan, who WILL you leave it to? And how much? Will your children and grandchildren be the recipient of your wealth or will the government be? The death tax rules are stacked against you and without proper planning you may experience the most expensive day of your life on the day you die. Income taxes, inheritance taxes, and estate taxes are just some of the pitfalls on the road from transferring your hard earned wealth to your family. You have worked a lifetime accumulating your nest egg. Don't leave to chance the process through which your wealth will be divided. A well crafted estate plan gives you security and flexibility in knowing that your wishes will be carried out in an effective and timely manner.
