I recently ran across this Forbes.com article and it struck a chord.  Why?  Because I hear the same thing all the time.  Of course, you would expect that a Grand Rapids, Mi estate planning attorney would hear the comment quite often – so don’t take my word for it.  Read the article!  You may be surprised what an “estate” actually is.

Oh, and don’t forget to read a couple of my previous posts that drill down into a little more detail on what “estate” means.  You can find out what a Michigan estate is by clicking here, and what your estate tax estate is by clicking here.
