INTRODUCTION TO ASSET PROTECTION PLANNING
“Liability insurance is a must. But, it is often insufficient. That’s where the Asset Protection Plan comes in.”
“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ asset protection plan. And, doing nothing is the road to disaster. Many plans and planning tools work well for a majority of clients. Some work well for many clients. Others work well for only a few. Only an experienced attorney knows the difference and how to design, prepare, implement and operate a customized asset plan appropriate for a given client and their circumstances. And, what should be done must be done before a creditor’s claim arises. After that point, it is usually too late.” STEVE YAHNIAN, Attorney/CPA, Yahnian Law Corporation
Use a Tax Attorney/Asset Protection Planning Attorney.
Asset Protection Planning must take into account the tax aspects of every situation. An attorney must analyze the tax issues of each client situation and applicable asset protection plan strategy before embarking upon the design and implementation of the plan. Many asset protection planners forget this rule and advise clients on asset protection plans that are infeasible from a tax perspective. Such faulty plans and deficient services cause the client tax problems and potentially increased tax liabilities. That’s why you should use a Tax Attorney/Asset Protection Planner. Steve Yahnian is an Attorney/CPA with advanced degrees and Certificates in Taxation and decades of experience. At Yahnian Law Corporation, we are skilled and experienced in tax planning (as well as Asset Protection Planning) and how the same impacts upon and is interwoven with the asset protection strategies that are available. Few attorneys who hold themselves out as asset protection planners can offer this necessary conjunctive service.
