Inheritance Tax Planning

Pennsylvania is one of a handful of states that assesses inheritance taxes on some of the heirs of a decedent. Depending on the relationship the heir has with the decedent, the tax rate may be 4.5 percent, 12 percent or 15 percent. We will work with you to analyze the entirety of your estate to determine what strategies you may be able to use to limit the tax hit your heirs may face.

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid is a program that can help ease the burden of health care expenses that some families are facing. Medicaid is a welfare program, which means the government closely scrutinizes your assets when determining whether you are eligible. Our lawyers will help you determine whether you may qualify and identify options that can help preserve your assets for the next generation.
