Taxable Estates

A taxable estate consists of all your assets including your home and other real estate, life insurance policies, retirement accounts, bank accounts and joint accounts. If the total of these assets exceeds the applicable estate tax deductions and exemptions, upon your death your estate will be taxed before the remainder is distributed according to your Will. These tax laws are an ever evolving and complex system requiring a knowledgeable and experienced hand; the consequences of a faulty plan could result in significant unnecessary costs.

How and when estate taxes will be applied can be minimized in a well structured estate plan. The attorneys at Beth Sparks Hunt pllc, can evaluate your estate in a comprehensive plan with the best available options regarding your estate. A well drafted and legally sound plan can greatly benefit surviving family and loved ones by averting lengthy and costly expenses and unnecessary taxation on your estate.

Beth came alongside our family at our darkest hour. My children and I were in no emotional condition to deal with the unexpected death and the family ugliness that sometimes comes with dealing with estates. At 40 years old, I didn’t even have an attorney, but Beth came very highly recommended from people in my community. I so appreciate her taking up the armor and protecting us. After all was done, she continues to check up on us 12 years later. We trust her implicitly. Now we need her again concerning aging parents. I could be a very different person today – bitter and angry – but Beth was the tool I needed to be resilient."

I was referred to Beth Sparks as I knew her then many years ago. I had interviewed other estate planning attorneys and they could not even come close to Beth’s knowledge, intelligence, integrity and creativity with estate planning for my family which was complicated and required sophisticated knowledge of estate planning laws. She is hands down the best attorney in town, in fact in all of Colorado! I have had to update portions of my will, always finding her responsive and available. Since then I have also entrusted her to do marital planning and she was able to help me and my fiancé, impressing us with her objectivity and common sense. Despite her Harvard law degree she is very smart but not arrogant and you will become a trusted client and friend. I highly recommend her gifted knowledge and professionalism. She is the best! A gem!"
