Benefits Of Setting Up A Trust: Reducing Estate Taxes
An effective strategy to reduce the immediate impact of high estate taxes following the death of a loved one is to set up a living trust or testamentary trust while the estate holder is still alive.
As one of the conditions of a trust, there must be a trustee, an individual or organization that assumes fiduciary responsibility over the funding, beneficiary rights, investment and disbursement of assets in the account.
It is often most beneficial to appoint a trustee who is independent of family affairs and influences. Many individuals appointed as trustee find that they need legal assistance with the process when the time comes.
If you are a trustee or family member who needs assistance with trust administration or probate matters, I invite you to speak with me, attorney Michael G. Horton, in Clermont, Florida.
