Compassion, talent and dedication: guiding colorado families and Their Trusted Advisors During Times of Need

November 2018 Archives

Collecting the debt for a creditor from a Colorado estate

When a person passes away, he or she usually leaves behind not only assets, but also valid debts and liabilities. At our law firm, we sometimes represent creditors trying to collect debts that survive the deaths of the deceased people who became liable for those debts during their lifetimes. 

Lessons learned from Justice Ginsberg

As the media has widely reported, earlier this month U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg fell in her office, breaking three ribs. At 85 years old, a fall raises concerns for an older patient’s physical and mental health as well as questions about whether her environment could be safer. 

When are estate and trust administration expenses deductible?

Prior to the 2017 Tax Cuts And Jobs Act (TCJA) these administrative expenses generally fell into the miscellaneous itemized deduction bucket. The TCJA suspended miscellaneous deductions until Jan. 1, 2026. This had created uncertainty about whether an estate, a non-grantor trust or an individual beneficiary could still claim them in the interim.

Gift and estate tax planning for wealthy Colorado taxpayers

At our law firm, we provide estate planning advice and services to Colorado clients at all levels of wealth, but for those at upper tax brackets, it is important to evaluate if and how federal gift and estate taxes could impact choices to make lifetime gifts as well as estate planning choices to minimize tax liability.
