Why is an estate plan important? The estate tax is probably the largest single tax you
are ever likely to pay. With the highest maximum rate at slightly under 50%, it’s
important that you create a plan that’s right for you and your heirs.
An estate plan can help you to:
•Preserve assets and wealth.
•Ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes to the right people at
the right time.
•Minimize or defer taxation.
