Estate planning: joint tenancy and asset ownership

When establishing an estate plan it is important to determine how you own something, such as an investment account, real estate property or even a checking account. Consider the example of a couple who brings not only separate property to a second marriage, but children as well, like many blended families in Michigan. The couple went about classifying all of their assets as joint tenancy. Joint tenancy or joint tenants is a term that deals with the rights of survivorship.

Do you have to pay an inheritance tax on a joint tenancy?

Since many couples delay marriage, or simply do not marry at all, Massachusetts residents may wonder what happens when you own a home with another in a joint tenancy and one person listed on the title dies. One reader wanted to know if there was an inheritance tax in just that situation, so we thought others may be interested in the topic as well.
