South Jersey Trust - Eliminating Capital Gains GIF

Invariably, when a person is seeking to sell their business or real estate, they seek out the well-placed trust and well-respected advice of either a competent Realtor, CPA or Attorney.

Each of these trusted professionals bears a fiduciary obligation to work tirelessly, on behalf of their client, to achieve maximum results.

Most of the time advisors find themselves recommending two traditional vehicles:

1. The 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange, which merely rolls the gain from one property to another.

2. The installment sale that only stretches out capital gains, doing nothing to reduce or eliminate them.

Of course, one glaring problem with an installment sale is that if the client dies, the full value of that outstanding note is termed Income in Respect of Decedent and immediately included in their taxable estate.

The only strategy available today that totally eliminates capital gains when selling real estate is achieved by employing our trust instruments.

    Trust Planning is a somewhat misunderstood element of our practice, yet it can, in fact, be the cornerstone in preserving and protection of assets.

    Many people labor under the misconception that trusts are only for the rich. Most of this has been borne of the notion of familiarity with the term, The Rockefeller Trust.

    The truth is that trusts stem from medieval days and were developed as a tool to benefit the common people.

    A properly executed trust strategy can protect assets, preserve assets, transfer estates tax free to heirs or fund family foundations for hundreds of years.

    South Jersey Trust Planning - Asset ProtectionAsset Preservation should be one of the most significant concerns for everyone, today.

    We have recently witnessed an economic spiral that has been unvisited upon our nation since the Great Depression.

    It is no secret that we are living longer, due to a number of factors such as a more active lifestyle and diet choices, as well as overall enhanced medical care.

    Age 90 is no longer a mental stretch. There is a likely probability that many of us will still be getting around at age 90.

    We need to plan financially for those times by first assuring that today's assets survive, as long as we do.

    South Jersey Trust Planning offers excellent strategies that are well capable of doing just that and are quite simple to explain to you.

South Jersey Trust Medicaid Planning

Medicaid Trust Planning is certainly a matter that should be on most everyone's mind, as there is a distinct possibility that nursing homes often figure into the equation in the latter stages of life.

We all pretty much understand the fundamentals of Medicaid rules and know that our home is a protected asset, as well as pensions and IRA's.

But stocks, bonds, mutual funds, CD's, checking accounts and savings accounts are termed "countable assets" that figure significantly into Medicaid eligibility and can be "lost" to Medicaid.

Some initial trust planning now can go a long way in keeping your assets for your family, as opposed to forfeiting them to Medicaid.

Remember, there is little effective planning that can be done on the steps of a nursing home.
