Minimizing Tax Implications

Trust & Estate Services

The Situation:

Mary and John have been married for quite some time. Although they both had children from previous marriages, they now have a large valued stock that they purchased together. They would like to use this stock to set up trust for their blended family in the event of their death. However, they are worried about the tax implications that come with gifting.

The Solution:

Mary and John contacted their PNC Fiduciary Advisor and local attorney to develop an estate plan and trusts. This would help ensure that following their death, their children from previous marriages are equally taken care of and their charitable interests would also be satisfied.

In the event of either John or Mary’s death, the estate settlement advisor at PNC would work with their attorney to identify and collect assets, liabilities and handle all of the business matters pertaining to the settlement of the estate, filing court documents and tax documents, allowing time for the surviving spouse to console the family and make additional arrangements.

Estate planning is only performed in conjunction with a client’s attorney, accountant, and/or other business advisors.
