Get help if you have to administer an estate

If you are the executor of a will, you have an important role to play after your loved one passes away. The process can be emotional, because you're in charge of carrying out their wishes. You're also in charge of settling debts, distributing assets and even letting the government know that the individual has passed away.

Should you seek a Small Estate Act affidavit?

In Tennessee, estates under the value of $25,000 can be administered under the Small Estates Act. The administration of a small estate is less formal, but it should only be used in uncomplicated cases. For example, if your loved one passes away with only $20,000 and no debts, then handling the estate with the Small Estates Act would be feasible.

Tennessee ranks high as a tax-friendly state

Your retirement is approaching quickly, and you're eager to move past your days of working a 9-to-5 job. If you're planning to retire and leave an inheritance to your children or loved ones in your estate plan, you may be looking for the best place to live to maximize the inheritance and protect it against taxation.
