Failing to plan for your estate can mean the government, rather than your heirs, will take a big cut of your hard-earned money. With a little planning, you can save thousands of dollars. We encourage you to keep track of how much your estate is worth. To figure it out, add up the value of all your assets, including life insurance. If the total value exceeds the exemption amount, it’s time to consider a few simple planning techniques that can save your family at estate time. In addition, we’ll help you understand how some effective estate planning ideas can also cut your current income tax bill.

Do you know what your business is worth? If you’re like many business owners, the answer is most likely “no.” There are many instances when it’s important to determine the value of your company. If you’re considering selling your business or a product line, it’s important to know the value to prevent selling it for less than its worth. Business valuations are also a key component in estate or succession planning. Without knowing the fair market value of your business, there isn’t a way to ensure enough liquidity to pay taxes.
