Not making an estate plan is, in fact, making one, but It may or may not be the way we'd prefer to see our property disposed of. Estate planning Is not just for the rich. All families need to more clearly understand exactly what estate planning really is. Estate planning is the process of arranging affairs to meet the way we want our property used, conserved and disposed. It's also a method to desig- nate a guardian for minor children or to provide for the care of a disabled family member. Joyce Jones, Extension family finan- cial management specialist at Kansas State University says "a well-thought- out estate plan may help minimize family quarrels after the death of a family member." Jones also adds that thou- sands of dollars in federal gift and es- tate taxes, Kansas inheritance taxes and other estate settlement costs may be saved by a properly designed plan. Without a will or the use of other estate planning tools, solely-owned and shares of tenancy-in-common property will pass to persons prescribed by Kansas law and in specified propor- tions. A new series of Extension publica- tions on estate planning is designed to provide basic, general information about the fundamentals of estate planning. These publications are not intended to be a substitute for legal advice, but they may help prepare a family to work with September 23, 1992 -The Jelt~ll~uut~:Post.
