Benjamin Franklin said, ""in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes."" Yet few people want to think about death, and fewer still know how to properly plan for it, often leaving families to deal with confusing financial concerns in today's world of banks and brokers, probate courts, federal and state tax authorities, and other government agencies. A Family Guide to Wills, Funerals & Probate is an essential guide for someone planning an estate or for a family confronted with legal and financial issues in the wake of a death. Completely updated, this volume explains wills and how they function, how to plan for probate and death taxes, making final arrangements and negotiating with funeral directors, settling assets and closing the estate, and much more.
