Who deserves the most from your estate... the government or your heirs?
With a little pre-planning the choice can be yours.
people don’t realize the tax liabilities hidden within their estate.
Did you know that at death your property is assessed at fair market
value and any capital gains are taxed? While your primary residence is
exempt, the family cottage is not. The value of your RRSP or RRIF is
also taken into income and fully taxed.* The resulting taxes can be
substantial, and to cover the costs your heirs may be forced to sell
property or liquidate investments. But with a well-designed estate plan,
you can preserve these assets and make sure they are distributed
according to your wishes. If you’d like an assessment of the tax
liabilities in your estate or want to learn about developing an estate
plan to preserve your assets, please contact us.
