Estate planning is the act of organizing the
assets of one's estate to create a balance of
safety, growth and tax savings according to the
needs of the estate holder. Goals of estate
planning might include aggressive growth in the
owner's younger years to income and tax savings in
his or her elder years. An important part of
estate planning is the structuring of assets to
allow the expedited transfer of an estate to heirs
with as few taxes as possible. Provisions can
be included in an estate structure to provide for
grandchildren, charities or others upon the passing
of the estate owner.
Basic tools of estate planning include wills,
various uses of trusts, powers of appointment,
annuities and other insurance instruments, various
forms of real estate ownership, powers of attorney,
medical powers of attorney, living wills, etc.
The larger an estate is the more flexibility the owner
of the estate has to make use of various legal
structures so the estate is handled properly and
passes to the heirs as the owner wishes upon death.
