Editorial Reviews

Florida Sun-Sentinel
A search of more than a dozen books in my reference library uncovered a mention of the stepped up basis in all, but only Estate Planning Basics... makes it clear that the basis of inherited property is adjusted up or down.
The Wall Street Journal
One of the simplest and best overviews of the estate-planning process. It will help you understand most of the documents you need, and some basic planning (including disability planning, which too many authors overlook).
