One of the oldest and most common forms of taxation is the taxation of property held by an individual at the time of their death. Such a tax can take the form, among others, of estate tax (a tax levied on the estate before any transfers). An estate tax is a charge upon the decedent's entire estate, regardless of how it is disbursed. An alternative form of death tax is an inheritance tax (a tax levied on individuals receiving property from the estate). Taxes imposed upon death provide incentive to transfer assets before death. Gift tax laws are generally designed to prevent complete tax avoidance by this route. The Federal Estate Tax is integrated with the Federal Gift tax so that large estates cannot be shielded from taxation by lifetime giving. Many states also impose an estate tax.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Should you choose a large lawyer or a small lawyer:
    The size of a law firm has no relation to how well your case will be taken up. A large law firm may seem well staffed and having a great office, but what you must see is whether they will take out enough time and effort towards your case. Large firms receive large cases that would figure above smaller cases in their priority list. A law firm with over 10 lawyers on its rolls can be considered a large firm.

  • Always make a comparison before choosing a lawyer:
    Before you choose a lawyer always make a good comparison by asking colleagues, friends and people associated with the legal profession. You can get some important information, which you would not get by simply visiting the law firm in question. Another good comparison is by finding out what other lawyers and legal web sites think about the law firm. A good site to find out about the standing of lawyers is www.martindale.com
