Aretha, Donald Trump, Retha Franklin discussed on Keep Hope Alive


Read why would Retha Franklin I'm assuming her counselor advised. Her to get a trust why would? She not do it You. Know there's a, lot, of people why people a lot of reasons why people, avoid it it it's been oh it's probably an uncomfortable tour to. Contemplate your own mortality and people have a natural tendency to avoid lawyers when it's optional let's talk, about what. Happens to her eighty million dollar estate for sun sixty three sixty one fifty four. Forty I guess, our ages, aren't really relevant and she has an eighty million dollars state no, will well you, know I don't know what what her tax situation was before she died, but she had you know if she. Didn't give away a taxable gifts, during her lifetime she had thanks to the, tax cut she has an eleven point one eight million dollar exemption from a state tax. But that leaves almost sixty million dollars to be. Hit with a forty percent estate tax that's do nine. Months after her date of death. So you can imagine because she didn't. Do that planning there may be a liquidity problem there. May be fire sale on her Assets So so so Reeve her not doing a trust is going to cost the, estate how? Much, well I'm. Not I it, it you. Don't there's there's a lot of ways to reduce the, taxes but in eighty million dollars state is going to have to pay some estate, taxes but for, example you, know not having a. Will she was very philanthropic during her. Lifetime anything that she would have given to charity in a. Will, actually she directed money to go to a charity would have escaped that forty percent. Bite I read that I read the Pedo wanted the family to donate her fur coat collection to, them but that for coke collection is gonna pay forty percent on their fair market value as of her dead of doubt because because Aretha didn't direct that pita get for. Collect. Wow so so there's, no there's no rational financial reason why somebody would die without a, wheel especially somebody that's got money like Aretha it's going to cost Loss of. Privacy obviously people are gonna know what she had what she would it would our debts aren't all, that stuff but also complicate things and end up paying more than she otherwise would have paid and the administrator of her estate is probably going to get somewhere around three. Hundred. Thousand dollars and the, the the attorneys will get a similar amount and about at least, half of that could have been avoided by using a trust Wow What we thank you very much for taking the time to.
