Limiting Estate, Gift, & Capital Gain Taxes upon your death, how would you like your financial assets divided?                                           

___% to IRS                                                                             

___% to heirs of your choosing

For example, in 2019, federal law gives each person dying in 2019 a $5,700,000 exemption from estate taxes, $11,400,000 per married couple.  The net fair market value of all assets in the estate in excess of the exempt amount may be taxed at 40%.  The federal estate tax is due nine months after the date of death.   

Depending on the value of your estate, upon your death, it could be divided like this:                                          

25 - 30%  to IRS                                                                              

70 - 75%  to heirs of your choosing                                            

00%         to charities
