The disposition of family treasures—from valuable heirlooms to family photographs—is often overlooked during estate planning, and the sentimental value of such objects often leades to the ugliest family disputes during the estate administration process. With thoughtful planning, you can ensure that those bequests won’t create unintended disharmony, negative tax consequences or financial burdens. Join us for a discussion on effective preparation for the disposition of your tangible personal property and how you can make bequests more meaningful and more memorable.
