However, this does not mean that you should ignore estate tax issues or become overwhelmed by them. Instead, turn to Northern Virginia Trusts and Estates for great estate planning advice and guidance at a fair price, no matter how big or small your estate may be.

Estate Tax Basics

Many people think that estate taxes are only important for those who have a particularly large estate, but this is not true! Estate tax planning is a good idea for everyone to ensure that you are making the best choices for your loved ones and your assets.

Here are some things you should know about estate taxes:

  • The value of your estate includes almost every single asset, including life insurance, meaning it may be worth more than you think!
  • Revocable living trusts, a common part of estate planning, will not necessarily exempt your estate from taxation.
  • The current estate tax laws are in place for the next two years. This means that things may change significantly in the not-so-distant future.
