Estate Tax and Kentucky Inheritance Tax Planning
Complex problems deserve skilled problem solvers.
There are a variety of tax rules that may apply to assets of an estate or to a gift made during life, including the federal estate tax, federal gift tax, the generation-skipping transfer tax, and Kentucky inheritance taxes. These tax laws are complicated, but planning considerations grow more complicated when income and property tax considerations are also involved. Our attorneys and tax professionals are well-versed in each of these systems and uniquely positioned to help you navigate all stages of estate tax, inheritance tax, and income tax planning. By planning for transfers during life or at death, taxes can often be reduced or eliminated. In several instances our attorneys and tax professionals have been able to evaluate the possible effect of the federal transfer tax system and the federal income tax system to save clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax expense.
