Week 6 individual assignment – godfrey’s assets

  

Review the textbook problem #54 on page 608.

Prepare a 350- to 700-word document that addresses and includes the amount of taxable estate for each of the following:

  • Address the question at the end      of the scenario.
  • If Godfrey came to you before      his death and told you that he had a spouse and two children under the age      of 18, what kind of estate plan would you suggest for him?
  • What if Godfrey had no spouse      but had two children under the age of 18?
  • What if Godfrey had no spouse      or children, but had a favorite niece?

Feel free to set up the assignment in memo format since you are responding to Godfrey’s questions.  You can include a Q&A within the memo. Start your memo with a brief introduction to let Godfrey know the memo will address. 

Word Count: Make sure you are at least meeting the minimum word count.

APA: If you quote, paraphrase, and/or summarize from any source apply APA.
