Without estate tax planning, an affluent family may see their wealth decrease by almost 50 percent due to federal estate taxes when a surviving spouse passes away and states take even more due to state estate taxes. Worse yet, certain forms of wealth, such as pre-tax 401(k) plans and IRAs, can swell income and estate taxes combined to 75 percent. Consequentially, children and other beneficiaries may receive less than half of the family’s wealth.
