Planning Your Estate

Estate planning on your own can be complicated and costly. And the list is endless... state taxes, bureaucracy, probate courts, unfair appraisals, health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRA's, 401K's, annuities, burial or cremation costs, and intent regarding death-postponing treatment to name a few. Not knowing your legal and financial rights often ends up costing you more in the end.

Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Could an heir be too young to inherit? Should the inheritance be given at a certain age? Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules, delays, and costs?

Planning what happens to your estate when you're gone can seem frustrating and intimidating without qualified help.

You may feel that you're too young to care about estate planning. Or, perhaps the reminder of death makes you uncomfortable. You might be tempted to put the whole thing off, assuming that it will just take care of itself. In all cases, estate planning ends up saving your family lots of time, heartache and money.

And we can help.

  • This was my first year using Toledo CPAs and they were incredible! Staff was delightful and they made the process so easy for me. I got a better then expected return and they set me up with tax estimates for the year to come. Needless to say I will be going back to them every year!
  • The amount of stress Tom, Nathan, and the staff has taken off of me has been a blessing. I can run my business and they take care of everything on the financial side. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, informative and affordable are only some of the many great things this company has to offer
  • I had a consultation with Tom about some business tax preparation questions I had. Simple, easy to understand answers, which I really appreciated. Friendly staff, very professional, I felt like they were truly concerned.
  • This is my 10th year with Toledocpa and looking forward for more to come! I want to thank you Tom and your staff for all those years! Congratulations on your new office Downtown! Wishing you the very best always!
