Topics that are covered in this program include: property ownership in Missouri, business structure, choosing your advisers, probate in Missouri, federal and state estate tax issues, wills, trusts, non-probate transfers, federal and state estate tax issues, special estate tax provisions, long-term care concerns, and the importance of family communication.
