The job of the Trustee?s attorney is to assist the Trustee in carrying out his/her duties as Trustee, including those described below, and to keep the Trustee free of legal liability to the Trustor and to the trust?s beneficiaries. The Trust administration attorney Carlsbad will help the Trustee collect and value assets, pay debts and taxes, and prepare the necessary transfer documents in connection with the eventual distribution of trust property among the various beneficiaries.
It is a multi-step process that generally accomplishes two (2) goals, namely to: 1) allow you to live as you wish, enjoying the fruits of your labor, and 2) preserve your wealth on your death to ensure the future prosperity of your loved ones. It is also a customized process ? not a one-size-fits-all estate plan, but rather a plan that requires attention to the financial, healthcare, familial and personal needs of each unique client? which is why choosing a trusted and qualified estate planning attorney Carlsbad CA is paramount.
With a United States tax code hundreds of times longer today (according to the IRS, measuring ~3,700,000 words, roughly equivalent to the Harry Potter series) than it was in the 18th century, federal estate and gift taxes as high as 40%, federal income taxes as high as 37%, and federal capital gains taxes as high as 20%, Mr. Franklin couldn?t have been more prescient.
