Remember that inherited assets, such as family businesses, are often the cause of tremendous emotional strain and stress for individual family members. It is best to address any actions that might be seen as fair or unfair ahead of time, so that family members know what to expect and why you are making the decisions that you are making.
They may not realize, for instance, that the tax implications of inheriting a business might be more burden than they could financially handle or that decisions involving management vs. ownership have been taken into account.
Contact us about our Succession Planning Services to determine the value of your business, before restructuring your business, to review the tax consequences and tax projections of your actions, and to help you plan for retirement.
