How much could it cost to probate your assets? Find out: Probate can take anywhere from 8 months to 2 years in California, with most probate matters going beyond at least one year. During this time, assets can be unmanaged and sitting in a state of uncertain limbo. But beyond the uncertainty, hardship, and delay caused by probate, there are costs which can usually be avoided with proper trust-based estate planning. How much could it cost to probate your assets?

TRUMP v. SANCTUARY CITIES What is a sanctuary city? As it relates to a legal definition, things are a bit unclear. To begin with, there is no statutory definition for the term “sanctuary city.” The term “sanctuary city” was coined by groups in favor of more stringent immigration policies. In the legal sense though, the term is meaningless. As it stands, the term is mostly political more than anything else. How can that be so? What about President Trump's executive order on sanctuary cities? Let us explain…

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS WHEN YOU DIE? If you’re reading this, you likely have an online presence. The average person has numerous online accounts making up an entire digital life. There’s Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and on and on. Don’t you want to control whether or not the contents of your digital identity are passed on to your loved ones or immortalized online—or even deleted entirely? So what happens to your digital life when your actual life ends? DEFAULT SETTINGS? When it comes to how a company treats your account when you die, generally speaking, it varies from company to company. To be sure, read the terms of service for each social media account. But remember, the terms are always subject to change. As for now-- 1. Facebook verifies reports that someone died by requiring a copy of an obituary or news article. Then they will either delete the account or turn it into a memorial page. Anyone can have a page turned into a memorial, but only family members or executors can have accounts deleted. 2. Twitter deactivates accounts for immediate family members or executors. They require a copy of a death certificate. 3. Instagram has the same ‘memorialize or remove policy’ as Facebook. Anyone can memorialize by providing an obituary or news article. Only family or executors can have the account removed by providing a death certificate. 4. LinkedIn allows anyone to remove an account by providing basic information about the account and a link to an obituary. Generally, it’s not terribly difficult for just about anyone to claim that you are dead and have your account locked and turned into a memorial. Deletion tends to require a higher standard. PROBLEMS WITH THE STATUS QUO? It is very easy to fake your death on social media. Requiring a picture of an obituary isn’t exactly the highest bar or the most thorough way to make sure someone is actually dead. (See, ) Each of these policies has one unfortunate thing in common--the account holder is not in control of what happens to their own account—someone else is deciding for them. What if your son wants to memorialize your page but your daughter wants it deleted? They’re both immediate family members, so what do the companies do with competing claims?

DEATH TO THE DEATH TAX? BUT WHO WINS? President Donald Trump’s one page tax proposal was released on Tuesday (April 25). Within this proposal, the Trump administration is pushing for a repeal of something they refer to as the death tax. What’s the reason for this push, and what does it really mean for you? Let’s get to it! PRESIDENT TRUMP'S POSITION According to the White House’s webpage, “The threat of being hit by the death tax leads 𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘸𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘴 and 𝘧𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘴 in this country to waste countless hours and resources on complicated estate planning to make sure their 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 aren’t hit with a huge tax when they die. No one wants their 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 to have to sell the family business to pay an unfair tax.” (𝘌𝘮𝘱𝘩𝘢𝘴𝘪𝘴 𝘢𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘥.) WHAT DOES THE TERM "DEATH TAX" REALLY MEAN? What is the death tax? SURPRISE! There is no such thing as an actual death tax. The term is just a clever marketing gimmick for politicians (and critics of the estate tax) to make you despise what is primarily, at the federal level, only an estate tax. ( ) Simply put, this is a tax that affects only 0.02% of all estates, or better yet—1 in 500 estates. So why not just say “estate tax”? Because taxing an estate doesn’t get people too riled up. But the specter of Uncle Sam taxing your death—that must surely bother you. ESTATE TAX Based on 2017 exemption amounts, the federal estate tax is levied only against a tiny minority of the wealthiest of Americans. If you are single and have assets valued at less than $5,490,000 at the time of your death (in 2017), then you don’t need to worry about the federal estate tax. If you are married and have combined assets valued at less than $10,980,000, then you don’t need to worry about the federal estate tax. (There are 15 states which have a state level estate tax, but those too have exemption amounts which effectively keep the tax from touching most estates.) INHERITANCE TAX It’s worth mentioning that there is something called an inheritance tax. The inheritance tax is not a federal tax. It is a state tax levied in only 6 of our 50 states (and barely so!). Some people like to include the inheritance tax in their discussion of death taxes as a way to make their case that Uncle Sam is out to get your wallet. Resist the bait. Uncle Sam has nothing to do with the inheritance tax. If we are discussing federal tax policy, any mention of a tax which only exists at the state level (in 6 states!), is just a distraction. So when the President is referring to death taxes, he can only be referring to the federal estate tax—and nothing more. For this is all that his federal government can legislate upon. (But just to be clear anyway, if you don’t live in Nebraska, Kentucky, Iowa, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Maryland, you don’t need to worry about it. And in most of those states, the tax doesn’t touch an inheriting spouse. And in some, even kids and grandkids are exempt from the tax! And let’s not forget that each state has its own exemption level which basically means that the tax only affects relatively few people in those 6 states.) EFFECT OF REPEAL OF THE ESTATE TAX Consider that the Joint Committee on Taxation has estimated that a repeal of the estate tax would cost the federal government $269 billion over 10 years. ( ) In all likelihood, that’s $269 billion that will have to come from somewhere else to satisfy the federal budget’s needs. Does a repeal help at all? Surely those 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 Mr. Trump is so concerned with, and those 𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘸𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘴 and 𝘧𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘴-- they must be paying astronomical taxes on those estates above the federal exemption amount, right? Wrong! Estate taxes only tax the amount over the exemption limit. This means, the first $5.5 million (or $11 million for married couple estates) is not taxed at all. Only that amount above the exemption level gets hit with a tax. And the rates vary. Considering that the highest tax rate is 40%, which applies only against estates that exceed the previously mentioned exemption levels by more than $1,000,000, let’s suppose our imaginary unmarried farmer’s estate is valued at $6,490,000 at the time of his death in 2017, his estate would only have to pay a $400,000 estate tax, which is an effective 6.1% tax rate on the estate. Not really bankrupting anybody now, is it? QUI BONO? (WHO BENEFITS?) So who gains the most from repeal of the so-called death tax? Simply put-- only the ultra-wealthy. Not your average 𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘸𝘯𝘦𝘳. Not your average 𝘧𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘦𝘳. Not-- 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯-- unless perhaps the child’s name is Ivanka Trump. #estatetax #deathtax #DonaldTrump #Trump #IvankaTrump
