Estate planning is the preparation of tasks that serve to manage someone's asset base in the event of their incapacitation or death. Estate planning includes the bequest of assets to heirs and the settlement of estate taxes.

Drafting a Will and a Health Care Proxy
Everyone knows that a will concerns what happens to your assets once you pass away, but there are other documents that should be drafted when you are preparing a will. First and foremost is a health care proxy. This document appoints someone to make health care decisions on your behalf should you be unable to do so. Another document that should be drafted is a power of attorney that permits an agent to make business decisions on your behalf should you be unable to do so.
