Why tax planning is important for estates
On behalf of Cal Bomar of Bomar Law Firm, LLC posted in Estate Taxes on Thursday, July 30, 2015. Many people in Georgia believe that federal estate taxes are not something they need to be concerned about because they only affect the very rich. There are some instances in which a person may still be exposed to estate taxes, however. The issue more commonly occurs with single people than with married ones, as spouses have an unlimited exclusion from estate taxes on assets that pass to them. If a single person has such things as a home, significant life insurance proceeds, healthy individual retirement account balances and other assorted assets, the value of their estate may be pushed beyond the federal estate tax exemption of $5.

Why Tax Planning is Important
Tax planning is an integral piece of a proper financial plan. The fact is many people do not concentrate on tax planning. I have seen this truth in my practice through new clients who often tell me, “My tax guy never talked to me about how to lower my tax bill through tax planning. ” Most folks handle their taxes in a reactive manner versus a proactive approach. They dump their tax documents on the tax preparer’s desk and hope for the best. This is a recipe for disaster. Understanding the impact taxes will have on your financial well-being is essential, especially for those who are self-employed.
