At Balisok & Kaufman, PLLC, which located in the beautiful Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn New York, we handle a wide range of Estate Planning cases, trust and estate matters for individuals with all levels of assets.
Under New York State Intestacy Laws if an individual fails to make a valid will, all assets owned by the person at death (except for a few exceptions) pass according to the law’s rules – not according to the decedent’s wishes. You can stop that from happening. Call us today and let us help you make a will that will stand the test of time and ensure that your property goes to the people you love.
New York State and the United States Department of the Treasury are itching to get their hands on a decedent’s assets. With proper planning and proactive measures, one can avoid paying inheritance taxes.
