Personal Taxes, unlike business taxes, refer to the preparation of tax returns for a variety
of income, capital gains, gifting, distribution and estate issues that are filed by an individual.
Shoreline’s personal tax planning is directed toward helping our individual clients arrange their affairs in a way that will minimize their own income tax burdens and the transfer tax (the estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer tax) burdens on their families.
Our advisors have considerable experience in utilizing the methods that are available for deferring and reducing federal and state income taxes and in the development of tax-efficient structures for particular investments. These include various deferred compensation arrangements, the utilization of foreign and out-of-state trusts, the use of derivatives and other cutting-edge investment strategies and the use of tax-advantaged charitable giving techniques.
The three federal transfer taxes — the estate or death tax, the gift tax and the generation- skipping transfer tax — are now imposed at a maximum rate of 45%. The substantial size of these taxes motivates many of our individual clients to take steps during their lifetimes to reduce the impact of these taxes on their families.
Reducing these taxes generally involves structuring and implementing one or more of a variety of lifetime transfers. These transfers range from the simple use of the annual gift tax exclusion to more complicated transfers involving the creation of family trusts and the fractionalization of investment and business assets.
