Protect your disabled child with a special needs trust

When you work on your Washington estate plan, you probably do so with the intent of leaving as much of your wealth behind for your child as you possibly can. If your child has special needs, however, you may need to make additional accommodations for him or her in your absence. At Gellner Law Group, we understand that estate planning for a special needs child involves additional considerations, and we have helped many people facing similar circumstances pursue estate planning solutions that meet their needs.

Addressing your transfer on death accounts

You may not know that starting your estate planning could begin with just a few steps. In particular, if you have bank accounts, savings accounts or other similar accounts, you could easily name beneficiaries to those accounts and begin getting your end-of-life affairs in order more quickly than you ever imagined.

Do you qualify for relief from tax penalties?

Anyone can fall on hard times. Moreover, with recent changes to tax regulations, those hard times may have been made harder by a more significant tax debt than someone expected. However, the IRS does provide relief for people in tough situations if they can prove they had good reason to fall short on their tax obligations.

How to choose an estate administrator

When planning your estate, there are a myriad of factors to consider. One of the most important may be who you choose to handle your estate once you have passed. The estate administrator, sometimes referred to as the executor of the estate, is responsible for ensuring all matters involving the estate are handled properly. It may be daunting at times for estate administrators to juggle all of the duties given to them, and so it is critical that you select someone who is up for the task. If, however, the administrator you choose does not want to take on the position, he or she may decline and the court will appoint one to take over the duties.
