Gift & Estate Tax Valuations

that transferring your wealth to your children or grandchildren can be

can cause your hard-earned money to go to frustrating taxes, rather than
loved ones and family members.

- Family-limited partnerships
- Limited liability companies

Should I Create a Family Limited Partnership?
The main reason you may want to form a family limited partnership or limited
liability company as a legal entity is to intelligently manage family
wealth. A partnership or LLC can be used as a tool for wealth transfer planning.
Establishing a family partnership or LLC is complex, and the success of
one depends on a number of different variables. That is why our
business professionals are here to assist you with these matters.
We put together specific strategies to help you avoid tax obstacles, using
family-limited partnerships and limited liability companies to allow for
a larger amount of assets to be transferred without incurring seemingly
insurmountable taxes. If you are interested in creating a partnership
as part of your estate plan, reach out today.
How Does a Family Limited Partnership Work?
Generally, the owner (you), contribute assets to the family limited partnership
or limited liability company in exchange for ownership units in the partnership
or LLC. You then gift ownership units to your children or grandchildren,
transferring wealth out of your estate and into the hands of family members.
This allows for the transfer of wealth at discounted amounts and helps
to minimize gift and estate taxes.
As general partner, you, the donor:
- Controls what cash the limited partners receive
- Determines what abilities the limited partners have
- Retains control over the partnership assets
