Many people dislike the subject of estate planning, which is fairly understandable. Nevertheless, prudent individuals recognize that being prepared can make such eventualities considerably less trying and burdensome - both emotionally and financially - for those left behind in grief. There are a number of estate planning tools available to you, from a simple wills to complex trusts. Proper and thorough estate planning can simplify and hasten the distribution of property to rightful heirs, while at the same time significantly reducing or completely eliminating the tax burden imposed by the Internal Revenue Service.
