Tax-Advantaged Wealth Management Strategies

There are exceptions to almost every rule. Nowhere is this truer than with the U.S. Tax Code. At Connelly Law, our attorneys introduce clients to tax-advantaged wealth management strategies and vehicles, including:

  • Bypass / Credit Shelter Trusts (used to preserve federal estate tax exemptions);

  • Stretch IRA Trusts (used to ensure generational income tax deferral on qualified retirement plans);

  • Beneficiary-Controlled Grantor Trusts (allowing pass-through tax treatment to the beneficiary in an asset protected environment, estate tax and generation-skipping tax-free);

  • Intentionally Defective Grantor Trusts (allowing pass-through tax treatment to the grantor to reduce the grantor’s taxable estate or to take advantage of lower marginal tax rates);

  • Family Limited Partnerships (used as an estate tax minimization strategy whereby shares in the FLP can be transferred between generations at lower tax rates than would be applied to the FLP’s holdings); and

  • Tax-Advantaged Investments (e.g. life insurance retirement plans, long-term care annuities, 1031 and 1035 exchanges, and self-directed IRAs).

If you are interested in learning how to enhance your financial plan with effective tax planning, contact our office to schedule a free initial consultation with our experienced estate planning and wealth management attorney.
