Incorporating Retirement Accounts into Estate Plans
When most people think of estate planning, they only think of creating a will. However, there are far more aspects to an effective estate plan than just a will. One important consideration is how your retirement planning vehicles will be used after your death. In many cases, your retirement benefits will survive you and can be a source of income for your beneficiaries. At James T. Borello & Co., our consultants can help you make plans to stretch your IRA into future generations and make it a tool for your estate plan.
Estate and Inheritance Taxes
Understanding how taxes will affect your estate plan is essential. If your estate is valued at more than $5.34 million in 2014, the excess will be taxed at a high rate. Consulting with a qualified tax professional about your estate plans can help you mitigate some of the effects of estate taxation.
