Estate Planning for 30 Somethings - September 22
With Attorney Allison Poirier

A common misconception about estate planning is that it is only for those who are old and rich. For this reason, most people think estate planning should go hand-in-hand with retirement planning, and younger individuals with fewer assets move estate planning all the way down to the bottom of their to-do list. However, preparing an estate plan can make just as much sense for a 30 year old as it does for someone on the verge of retirement.

 

 

Agricultural Succession & Estate Planning - October 6
With Attorney Allison Poirier

To a large extent, farm owners face the same estate planning issues as many non-farmers: how to avoid probate, how to avoid paying estate or gift taxes, how children’s or other beneficiaries’ inheritance should be managed.

Tax Implications of Inheritance - October 20
With Attorney Allison Poirier

A loved one has passed away and left you some or all of their assets. The question most people ask then is, "Do I have to pay any taxes on my inheritance?” The general rule is that beneficiaries aren't taxed upon the receipt of an inheritance. However, there are some certain exceptions to the rule that you should be aware of. This webinar will also discuss the tax benefits of letting heirs inherit assets vs. gifting those assets, for those setting up their estate plan.
