It's really this simple...you can decide if you would prefer to pay 8% of your entire estate to the federal government when you die or if you'd prefer to pay what is likely substantially less to an attorney now to create a trust. Choose wisely.

A will doesn't keep you out of Probate...which can also be a lengthy and stressful process on your loved ones when they are grieving. Not to mention the 8%. A trust does and you keep the 8%...but have to pay about t $1800 to an attorney to write the trust for you. It is money incredibly well spent but that is just my personal opinion.

With a trust you also get power of attorney, durable power of attorney for healthcare, Hippa forms, Healthcare directives, etc. These can be invaluable in the event you become incapacitated.
