Learn about the Variety of Tax Saving Options Available

We know that planning for retirement can sometimes feel overwhelming. For many, earning a living and making short term plans in a main focus. However, planning for the future is paramount when it comes to making the most of your hard earned savings, as well as protecting your high net assets. Speak to an experienced estate planning attorney with expertise when it comes to tax planning. Tax laws vary from state to state; Rothamel Bratton lawyers know the ins and outs of tax law in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida.

Talk to us about:

401(k) Rollovers: Many retirees roll over their 401(k) accounts into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) when they retire. As a result, the IRA becomes a significant portion of the estate of many retirees. However, an IRA is a very tax-sensitive vehicle. We know the methods to maximize your investment.

Choosing an IRA Beneficiary: IRAs are not subject to probate. Instead, they are distributed directly to your beneficiary or a qualifying trust. There are many reasons to choose your spouse or children as your beneficiaries. Likewise, there are reasons to consider creating a trust as the beneficiary for your IRA(s).

Trusts: To get the maximum tax savings from a trust, these documents must be carefully drafted to ensure your assets are protected under regulations issued by the Internal Revenue Service.

Inheritance and Estate Tax Issues: New Jersey and Pennsylvania both have inheritance and/or estate tax requirements, whereas Florida only taxes estates large enough to qualify for the Federal Estate Tax. These taxes can be quite steep, especially if the assets don’t go to a spouse or to children. Talk to us about creating a trust as well as other options to ease the tax burden.
