A living trust is a legal document that, just like a will, contains your instructions for what you want to happen to your assets when you die. But, unlike a will, a living trust can avoid probate at death. Prevent the court from controlling your assets if you become incapacitated.
A charitable remainder trust lets you convert a highly appreciated asset like stock or real estate into lifetime income. It reduces your income taxes now and estate taxes when you die. You pay no capital gains tax when the asset is sold. And it lets you help one or more charities that have special meaning to you.
Your estate will have to pay federal estate taxes if it’s net value when you die is more than the exempt amount set by congress at that time. Some states have their own death or inheritance tax so your estate could be exempt from federal tax and still have to pay state tax.
Life Insurance Trusts
An irrevocable life insurance trust gives you more control over your insurance policies and the money that is paid from them. It also lets you reduce or even eliminate estate taxes so more of your estate can go to your loved ones.
Creating Lasting Legacies
You made the money by working hard. Your estate plan can reflect your values and can incentivize your beneficiaries to continue to support those values.

How much money people have is usually considered a private manner but not having a plan about inheritance can leave your children unprepared.
