Minimize Estate Taxes Through Tax Planning

After spending a lifetime establishing a career and accumulating assets, it can be shocking to learn how much of your wealth can transfer to the federal government and the state of Connecticut via the estate tax. Thankfully, prudent estate planning can keep your hard-earned assets in the hands of your loved ones and minimize the share of your estate that is subject to state and federal estate taxes.
