ESTATE & TAX PLANNING

"It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune, and when you have it, it requires ten times as much skill to keep it."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
The regulations affecting estate planning are complex and continually changing. Many owners today have implemented ways to pay the taxes but few have implemented creative methods to reduce the tax. Plans also must take into consideration how they interact with your objectives and with every area of your business and personal financial plan. If not, your after-tax returns may suffer. Your best protection is to have well-versed experts help in the planning from the ground up.
Since 1988, we have specialized in getting successful people to slow down long enough to let us help them identify their long-term personal and business goals and design a custom-tailored plan for achieving them.
 
We specialize in the evaluation of your financial position in terms of your personal goals. Working with you and your other professional advisors, we assist in defining, verbalizing, and formalizing short- and long-term objectives. Then, based on these facts, feelings and objectives, we develop a custom-made estate plan to help you achieve them.
 
One primary wealth management task is to ensure the perpetuation and distribution of your wealth according to your goals. The key to successful wealth management is rapport based on our understanding of who you are and where you are headed.
 
Keeping current with the maze of rules and regulations is a full-time job. Modifications to the law or the enactment of a new law can impact critical elements of your personal and business financial plans. To offset any adverse impact that these changes would have on you, we design your plan to assure flexibility to implement changes as quickly as possible.
 
Our in-house tax experts offer more than 35 years of experience and can closely monitor all of the components of your estate plan. Paying careful attention to detail ensures that your plan meets all your business and personal objectives as well as local, state, and federal tax requirements.
We use the word "personal" in explaining our service and we mean personal as in confidential. We design and implement comprehensive, custom-made estate plans that take into account the reality of your personal and business situation.
 
To achieve this, we work closely with your attorneys, accountants, and other financial advisors, the people you trust and feel most comfortable turning to for assistance, to provide services in the following areas:
 
  • Complete review of all documents.
  • Compute federal and state, estate gift, and generation-skipping taxes.
