Federal Estate, Gift, and Generation-Skipping Tax Planning and Analysis

Planning for estate taxes feels overwhelming because let’s face it — the laws are complex and change frequently. Our tax attorneys understand the nuances of estate taxes and use their knowledge and experience to help clients navigate through all aspects, including:

  • Planning to reduce the tax burden on beneficiaries
  • Explaining the rules executors must follow when administrating estates
  • Structuring estate plans to avoid the gift tax

Our tax attorneys will help you to minimize estate and gift taxes while also creating plans to address any estate taxes due after your death. We can explore a variety of options to help reduce estate taxes including:

  • Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRATs)
  • Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts (ILITs)
  • Intentionally Defective Grantor Trusts (IDGTs)
  • Family Limited Partnerships (FLPs)
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs)
  • Charitable Lead Trusts (CLTs)
