Innovative Wealth Transfer Strategies for Granite Bay Clients

There are several tax-smart ways to pass your wealth to the next generation—and beyond.  These are especially valuable for sizeable estates in Granite Bay.

estate-planning-attorneyIntrafamily loans.  With favorably low federal interest rates, you can make intrafamily loans without paying excessive taxes.  Your estate planner will help you weigh the benefits and potential risks of this possibility.

Dynasty Trust.  The Dynasty Trust holds the potential to transfer wealth across multiple generations without incurring estate, gift, or generation-skipping transfer taxes for either the grantor or beneficiaries.

Spousal Credit Shelter Trust.  This trust gives spouses the ability to transfer wealth from one to the other.  Upon death, the amount can also act like a Dynasty Trust if the contents are directed to future generations.

Grantor Retained Annuity Trust.  This irrevocable trust benefits both the grantor and beneficiaries.  The grantor receives an annuity from the trust until it transfers to the beneficiary.  Payments end when the funds transfer.  The beneficiary receives the assets in the trust in addition to any additional amount of appreciation, all tax-free.

Morris Law Group estate planning attorneys can navigate the complexity of these and more wealth transfer strategies.  As Granite Bay’s estate planning experts we will ensure you and your family enjoy financial security and growth for generations.

Granite Bay

Granite Bay is a residential suburb of Sacramento just east of Roseville and west of Folsom Lake. Granite Bay is known as a more affluent area of the Sacramento Valley. Granite Bay offers many residents a ranch style setting while still being close enough to the main city to enjoy the perks of living in a suburb. Other residents of Granite Bay opt for gated communities and of course the traditional suburb we have come to associate with America.
