Estate Planning

You Have Worked A Lifetime To Accumulate Your Wealth

Let F&IMA, Inc. Help You Preserve It For Your Heirs.

Most people don’t normally think of their possessions as an "estate," nor do they worry much about what will happen to it all when they’re gone.

Most people just assume that their possessions will simply pass on to their families. However, generally at your death the federal government can impose an estate tax on all property in excess of $5,430,000* at a rate of as much as 40 percent of your hard-earned assets. In addition, estate taxes are due in cash within nine months of death. (* Individual, according to the IRS in 2018)
