Having an estate plan is important for protecting one’s family and making sure everything they worked for is taken care of. Estate tax attorneys in Boston and surrounding communities often counsel clients to create a revocable living trust due to the Massachusetts inheritance tax and the high home prices. Even modest estates can be subject to state estate tax. Creating a trust can minimize or eliminate the tax owed after death. Without an estate plan a court will decide who gets the assets based on state law rather than the individual deciding.
