3 WAYS

PROPER ASSET

YOU SAVE ON TAXES
Asset protection is intended to protect
an individual’s or business’s assets from
creditor claims, while operating within
the bounds of debtor-creditor law.
OVER
100 MILLION
LAWSUITS
Currently,
are pending
the U.S.
A lawsuit is filed
every 30 seconds.
Many businesses owners believe that once
incorporated, their personal assests are protected,
but thatʼs simply not the case.
Laws designed to protect the value of the homes of
residents from property taxes, creditors, and circumstances
arising from death of the homeowner spouse.
Some areas do have homestead
exemptions to reduce the value of the
home that is subject to property tax.
These laws can vary by state.
A Professional Limited Liability Company (PLLC)
can be used by professionals to isolate themselves
from liability of other partners.
It is important for professionals to have
personal and practice assets in LLCs
and/or FLPs to be protected.
LLC laws specifically prohibit a lawsuit against the
members for a claim against the business.
An LLC has a great deal of flexibility and can
be taxed as a sole proprietor, partnership,
S corporation or C corporation.
Some states do not allow licensed professionals to
operate their professional practices as an LLC.
KNOWLEDGE OF HOMESTEAD LAWS
PROFESSIONAL LIMITED
LIABILITY COMPANIES (PLLCS)
FLPs are a business structure frequently
used to move family wealth from one
generation to another with favorable
tax treatment.
FLPs are typically
holding companies,
acting as an entity
that holds the asset
contributed by the
family members.
Our Society achieves this mission by
sponsoring the nation’s top lawsuit protection
experts to present across the nation.

A corporate veil can be easily be pierced
in order to claim assets during a lawsuit.
Proper business structuring can protect
your personal assets with no downside.
(Doesnʼt protect against property tax liens!)
(Making sure your professional is up to date
with the latest laws in your state is essential).
A PLLC does not limit personal liability
for malpractice, meaning assets can be
taken to satisfy a judgement against
the business for malpractice.
Businesses with an
income of

John and Mary Smith purchased
a rental property for $250,000.
25 years later
the property value had
appreciated to $1,250,000.
Experienced asset protection experts use long standing
methods to shield your business from lawsuits, such as:
If they sell the property for $1,250,00,
they would pay capital gains taxes on
$1,000,000.Their capital gains combined
federal and state tax rate is 20%, which
would result in a tax of $200,000
($1,000,000 x 20%).
