Having an estate plan is important for protecting one’s family and making sure everything they have worked for is taken care of. Estate tax attorneys in Boston and surrounding communities often counsel clients to create a revocable living trust due to the Massachusetts inheritance tax and the high home prices. Even modest estates can be subject to state estate tax. Creating a trust can minimize or eliminate the tax owed after death. Without an estate plan a court will decide who gets the assets based on state law rather than the individual deciding.
The Kingston Public Library is pleased to welcome Sean Hagan for the first of two online programs. The first program is on March 8th at 6:00 PM. Mr. Hagan will discuss estate planning and answer your questions.
Sean Hagan is a Partner at the Law Firm, Long Hagan Huff-Harris and primarily advises clients on estate and tax planning, as well as trust and estate administration matters. Mr. Hagan teaches a legal research and writing class to paralegal students at Bunker Hill Community College. He lives in Kingston.

Be aware that deadlines and requirements may be different than in the past (definitely different from 1799, when Judah Washburn was taxed $3 for his two-person, one-horse chaise with a top).
