Estate planning for art collectors

Some art collectors in Georgia might not know who they want to leave their favorite paintings and sculptures to. This may lead to procrastination when it comes to estate planning. Others might even completely forget to address the future of an art collection. However, if a collector dies without making a plan, family members could end up paying high taxes on valuable art. Furthermore, heirs could end up in litigation if they are not happy with how the art is distributed.

Estate planning considerations for the new year

Many people in Georgia start off a new year with a personal to-do list that often includes resolutions to get or stay in shape and kick bad habits. While these are certainly worthwhile goals, a commonly overlooked item on such lists is estate planning. Some individuals may not find this topic to be all that pleasant. However, being proactive with making estate-related plans may make life easier for heirs and other loved ones while also providing much-appreciated peace of mind.

Why should I make an estate plan in my 20s?

Many people often associate making an estate plan with getting older. They wrongly assume that it's not necessary to make such a plan unless you are in your 40s or 50s. However, this is simply not the case. Estate plans are not only necessary for planning your legacy beyond your lifetime, but they also help you to manage accumulating assets, retirement plans, and health directives.

Using life insurance as an estate planning tool

Even the youngest members of Georgia's baby boomer generation are now in their 50s. It's during this stage of life that many people begin to think about financial and estate plans. Life insurance products are one solution that's often overlooked. Taking some type of action with estate arrangements is an important step commonly recommended for the boomer generation since individuals within this age range tend to have significant assets they wish to pass along to future generations.
