If you don’t plan on dying, you won’t need a personal customized estate plan. The reality is that many people die with unprepared estates. In such cases, the Government and the IRS will cash in on our life long savings and tangible property and our loved ones will be left to satisfy the financial details of an improperly managed estate. Sometimes this forces the sale of property originally planned to go to our loved ones.
