Is there an inheritance tax in Tennessee?

You're thinking of passing on your estate to your children, but you really don't want the government to tax your assets when they're just changing hands. Is there an inheritance tax that has to be paid in Tennessee? Does the government get to take a cut of your money before your heirs get it?

How a trust gives you better control over your assets

Estate planning is a complex task for anyone, but when you have investments and other assets that are large enough to fall under the estate tax statute, it can be even more challenging. With Tennessee adopting statutory taxation levels well below those in place at the federal level, many more people in this state are affected by the tax, and learning how to protect your family and your assets is a vital part of the planning process.

Surprising numbers about wills

It's to be expected that younger generations haven't set up estate plans as thorough as senior generations. Our awareness of mortality changes with age. Considering that preconception about age, a recent study shows that a surprising amount of Americans lack wills in all demographics.

After you create a will, you will feel like the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders. You can rest easy knowing that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes upon your death.
