YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU
Estate planning is vital, no matter how big or small your estate is. You’ve worked too hard to increase your net worth, save for your retirement, etc., to see a large portion of your money go to the gov- ernment. I’ve yet to meet any people that say they are so excited to die because then the government will finally be able to collect all that money from their estate. Actually, that’s a rather ridiculous state- ment, isn’t it? But, for many people, that’s what happens. Failing to do proper estate planning will have no effect on you during your life, but it will have a dramatic effect on the lives of your spouse, children, and other heirs.
