De Alicante Law Group has experience and expertise in assisting individuals and families with tax planning. Tax planning, including lifetime giving to loved ones and charities, can be set up as part of your estate planning, beginning during your lifetime or coming into existence at the time of your death. With the increase in life expectancy, more people are able to make gifts during their lifetime and enjoy seeing those gifts put to use now instead of just passing on assets after their death. With more significant assets, there are several other tools, including irrevocable trusts that can be utilized to minimize the impact of taxes on an estate. With frequent changes in the law, and significant differences in the law and tax structures of the State of Oregon and the Federal Government, tax planning needs to be done on a customized basis with each client in order to best meet the client’s needs and goals for their estate, as well as take advantage of State and Federal laws for allow clients to pay the least tax allowable that will still stay within their lifetime and estate planning goals.

- "It takes upfront effort to prepare a living trust and to work your way through the advance directives. Time and emotion. But, when my husband had a stroke, I was thankful to have all the details formalized. I could concentrate on his needs, not legal and financial paperwork."
- "When my husband became incapacitated, I knew how he wanted me to take care of him and when he died, I could concentrate on my grief work and not on paperwork. The trust remains a blessing."
- "Tony put together our living trust and advance directives. When my husband died suddenly, there were no awkward conversations with the step-children, no ownership transfers to process, no financial issues. I’m forever thankful for that."
