Estate Planning

            The attorney’s at Dunn &Hemphill, P.A. have over 50 years of combined experience helping people in North Mississippi plan for their family’s future.

Effective estate planning must consider income and estate taxation, and answer the question: “If I died today, will my heirs have to pay estate taxes?” Estate Tax laws have changed significantly in the last few years, so it is important for one to know what iscoming “down the road” in order to be prepared.

Estate planning must take into consideration long term care. With the passage of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, Congress made it even harder for the middle class to qualify for Medicaid. How are you going to pay for your long term care? Do you have long term care insurance? If so, is it adequate? Do you need help reading your policy? If you do not have long term care insurance, do you need it? Effective estate planning answers those and many more questions.
