Security. Purpose. Legacy
                                                     June 1, 2021
Hello Everybody,

Hard to believe but we're almost half way through 2021!

In BC, we pay probate tax of 0.6% on estate values between $25,000 - $50,000 and 1.4% on amounts over $50,000. This means an estate worth $1 million would pay $13,450 in probate taxes. You can use Joint Ownership to avoid this, but there are risks. Read about it in our Design Legacy section.

A robust, holistic approach to retirement income planning is needed to optimize your retirement income. Read my podcast transcript in the Preserve Wealth portion of this newsletter to find out what this means.

Our eyes are an important part of our bodies and deserve the same attention we give to the other parts. In the Healthy Aging Strategies segment, we have an article that details how to stay on top of your eye health.
Take care & stay safe,
use joint accounts to avoid probate?

With the BC probate tax rate of 1.4% on estates over $50,000, the tax bill on estates worth a million dollars or more can be significant. Should you use Joint Ownership to avoid probate? Click here for a MoneySense article that outlines the risks.
