This week on @blueleafcom, we included plenty of good reads for the weekend. One long article too: “The Estate Tax: Ninety Years And Counting,” which includes a history of the estate tax and the motivations behind it, directly from the IRS.
Why read it? Well, perhaps your investments all go incredibly well. And perhaps, as we hope, you do save enough to retire comfortably. That’s what we all want, isn’t it? And we don’t exactly hear anyone say, “I wish I was so rich I qualified for the estate tax.” But we at blueleaf.com com want you to be prepared for success too, not just tragedy. Because, well, we want you to succeed. The estate tax is not as high as you may think if your financial planning all goes well throughout your lifetime.
