Do you have life insurance? How about an irrevocable life insurance trust?

Life Insurance is a (potentially tax-advantageous) opportunity to create a large windfall of money to a family during a period they need it most. It can help offset many other estate tax costs that will be incurred by the settlement of affairs.

A properly drafted and effected irrevocable life insurance trust can take advantage of the prospective windfall without subjecting the proceeds to federal estate tax.

Our experts can walk you through the process of establishing an irrevocable life insurance trust.

Earlier this week, our Managing Attorney, Priya Royal, met with a group of DC, MD, and VA-area Pastors to discuss the importance of estate planning and how to get started.

Here's a quote from her presentation:
"Your estate is everything you own until the moment after your death. Even if you just have clothes on your back, that is your estate. You need estate planning to not cause waste during life, and ensure whatever you have or may have is protected and there to preserve your values and care for your loved ones."

There are many ways to invest with Self-Directed IRAs, but did you know that now you can mine Bitcoin directly into an individual retirement account (IRA)?

An IRA provider and a Bitcoin mining firm just announced they are teaming up to offer an IRA that allows customers to purchase mining hardware. The subsequently mined crypto would bypass the income and capital gains tax, just like other assets avoid when they appreciate through an IRA. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2021/07/24/how-to-invest-bitcoin-in-iras-for-retirement.html

Even if you can only contribute nominal amounts, saving money in retirement accounts can be an effective strategy for building wealth and bridging the wealth gap.

The Royal Law Firm uses an equitable pricing structure with a discounted rate model to make increasingly sophisticated legal wealth growth, preservation, and protection services accessible to all.

In 2019, our Founder, Priya Royal Esq., LL.M., MBA had the honor of presenting and chatting afterwards with Judge Holmes. Here's what she shared today:

"The Tax Court seemed ready to release this much awaited opinion on the valuation of Michael Jackson's right of publicity. Yesterday, Judge Holmes' 275 page opinion was released. As a former IRS Estate Tax Attorney and being acquainted the IRS examiner in this case, I'm especially intrigued. More to follow.

News outlets claim the Estate won. The Estate valued Jackson's right of publicity (name, image, likeness) at a mere $2,000. The Court valued it at $4.1M. It's a victory against the $157M the IRS claimed but an unreliable expert testimony which the Court noted affected the facts and the steep decline in the singer's career and reputation for several years prior to his death impacted the decision.

In 2009, the California and Federal Estate Tax exemption was $3.5M. A net estate over that amount was subject to a maximum of 45% tax rate. The Court's valuation is over 2000 times the estate's reported value. A 2000x increase in value (and tax) due to a successful artist's right of publicity value at death would be no victory. Asset protection planning can make this uncertain valuation ordeal irrelevant."

The purpose and role of a revocable trust is avoiding probate. Probate is a proceeding that occurs typically when an individual passes away. The probate process is something that can be long and costly, and so by having a revocable trust you can avoid the probate process in its entirety. A trust works well, if it is properly created and funded by an expert and experienced estate planning attorney.
