Estate Planning

Isler CPA can ensure that your estate is properly passed to your beneficiaries, whether they are children, friends or a favorite charity. We can help you understand the consequences of holding your assets within a living trust as opposed to letting them pass pursuant to a will (probate), within various business entities, or within a  charitable remainder trust and to make sure your estate taxes are minimized, estate administration is without problems, and cash is available to handle the taxes.
