DeBlanc, Murphy & Murphy FAQs
Tax planning isn't just for businesses. There are money-saving tax breaks and tax mitigation strategies that work great for individuals as well. Thoughtful tax planning can:
- Defer income so you can keep more of your earnings and pay less taxes in the future
- Lower taxes on your income so you can keep more of your earnings
- Lower taxes on your estate and gifts so your beneficiaries keep more
- Lower taxes on investments and retirement distributions so you maintain your lifestyle
Estate planning can be very simple or very complex, and the steps can vary depending on your individual circumstances. Simple estate planning can include specifying what happens to your assets after you pass away, outlining what happens if you become incapacitated, communicating your final wishes, and appointing guardians over minor children. Complex estate planning can include advanced estate and gift tax mitigation strategies, entity structuring with trusts and family limited partnerships, business succession strategies, asset protection strategies, probate avoidance, life insurance planning, legacy planning, and more. Regardless of the complexity, our estate planning experts can help you develop a plan to protect your heirs, your assets, and your legacy.
