Protecting Your Family Farm: A Free Estate Planning Seminar

A free estate planning seminar teaches family farmers how to provide for future care while minimizing taxes and protecting their farms for future generations.

Online PR News – 24-October-2016 – KAUKAUNA, WISCONSIN – On Wednesday, November 2, 2016, Hooper Law Office, LLC will sponsor a free informational farm Estate planning seminar specifically tailored for the unique circumstances of Wisconsin family farmers.

This free informational seminar will cover how to:

* Protect your farm, even when you need to pay for nursing home costs.
* Distribute assets among those who will continue the farm's operations and those who will not.
* Minimize, or eliminate, estate and capital gains taxes upon death.
* Protect your children's inheritance.
* Make the fee for your estate plan tax deductible.

70 percent of family-owned businesses, which includes farms, will not survive to the second generation. According to attorney Joe McCleer, “The costs of long-term care can drain farmers’ assets, forcing them to sell the family farm.” With the average cost of nursing home care in Northeast Wisconsin at over $100,000, these worries are warranted.

"Our aim with this seminar is to educate Wisconsin farmers about their options for affording long term care and transitioning their farm to the next generation," said Sarah Kons, a Partner with Hooper Law Office.

Guests will be provided a complimentary family-style chicken lunch or dinner as well as an opportunity to reserve a complimentary copy of the book, Your Life, Your Legacy: Protecting Your Family Farm.

The seminar will be presented by Hooper law office attorneys Sarah Kons and Joe McCleer at Van Abel's of Hollandtown, located at 8108 County Road D in Kaukauna. Two sessions on November 2, 2016 are available: 11:00am and 5:30pm. Seating is limited and RSVPs are required. Call 800-794-5548 or email to reserve seating.
