Who In Washoe County Needs An Estate Planning And Asset Protection Lawyer?

Estate Planning And Asset Protection Lawyer, Washoe County, NV

It is a common misconception that only the super-wealthy need careful estate planning assistance. The truth is that anyone running or building a business, anyone whose family will need their care after their passing, and anyone who wants to build a legacy that truly lasts should consult with an attorney.

And should do so sooner rather than later.

Estate planning and asset planning, after all, is far more about anticipating situations that have not yet arisen, than dealing with those that have already befallen. Especially when it comes to tax-optimization and minimization.

Tax-Focused Estate Planning?

Everyone needs some degree of estate planning. It is needed to make sure your legacy is safe after you die, that those you care for will recieve their part of what you’ve built up…and that it will be protected from those you know will misuse or abuse it.

Fewer people realize that estate planning can also protect those same assets, wealth, and properties from a fate nearly as inevitable as death: taxes.

And yet, taxes represent a very real threat to both the integrity of an estate and the lives and finances of those you leave assets to. While smaller estates may be exempt from federal estate or inheritance taxes (for now), beneficiaries are not. Your estate plan needs to take into account everything from the property taxes your loved ones may now need to deal with to the capital gains taxes, which could accrue over time.

Where And When Does Asset Protection Come Into Play?

Estate Planning And Asset Protection Lawyer, Washoe County, NV

If estate planning helps shield your assets from taxes when you pass away, asset protection is about shielding your wealth from taxes as well as other threats well before that. How you organize your assets has a significant impact on the amount that will lbe lost throughout your life to taxes and those who would seek to separate you from your hard earned money.

Few Washoe County residents realise the power of asset protection for minimizing the amount they lose to taxes year after year, and those who do rarely have the knowledge and understanding of either the legal or financial field needed to now how to actually protect their assets.

After all, both asset protection and estate planning, when performed at the level of rigor and detail required for significant tax reduction or avoidance, are art forms in and of themselves. Both call on a number of different and highly customizable tools, especially trusts, to accomplish their objectives.
