If you are an Arizona resident take our test to learn who will inherit your property if you die without a Will or a trust.

Our Silver & Gold Estate Plan Packages

To hire us to prepare your estate plan the first step is to complete and submit one of our two estate plan questionnaires:

  • the Silver Estate Plan bundle ($997 for a single person or $1,497 for a couple).  To purchase the Silver Estate Plan bundle complete our Silver Estate Plan questionnaire.  This plan is for people who have important or valuable assets and they want to make sure that the assets are inherited by the person or people they want to inherit rather than the people who will inherit under the law of the decedent’s state of residence at the time of death.  Arizona residents should learn Who Gets My Property If I Die Without A Will Or Trust?
  • the Gold Estate Plan bundle ($2,997 for a single person or $3,497 for a couple).  People who bought a Gold LLC from us get a $500 discount off the price of this estate plan.  To purchase the Gold Estate Plan bundle complete our Gold Estate Plan questionnaire.  If you buy our Gold plan make an appointment for a free 45 – 90 minute phone call or office meeting with Richard C. Keyt by using his online scheduling calendar or by calling our estate planning legal assistant Michelle Watkins at 480-664-7413.  During this meeting Ricky will answer your questions and work with you to design your estate plan.
  • Asset List – Complete this pdf fillable form to make an inventory of your assets to give to your loved ones so your heirs will know what you own if you were to die.

Our Beneficiary Controlled Asset Protected Trust

If you want to give any valuable assets to a child or loved one now rather than after you die then you should hire us to prepare a beneficiary controlled asset protected trust (a BCAPT) so your child or loved one will be protected from his or her current and future creditors, current and future ex-spouses and a bankruptcy court, none of whom will be able to get any assets held in the trust.  To learn more about these asset protected trusts see our article called “Beneficiary Controlled Asset Protected Trusts.”  To hire us to draft an BCAPT complete and submit our BCAPT questionnaire.

P.S.  The trust we prepare when hired to do a Gold estate plan provides that a BCAPT will be prepared for each person who becomes a trust beneficiary after the death of a sole initial trustee/beneficiary or the death of the second spouse when we do a joint trust.

A federal law called the Corporate Transparency Act effective January 1, 2022, requires almost ALL U.S. LLCs, for profit corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships file a report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCen”) of the U.S. Treasury or be fined $500/day until the report is filed.  The report must identify all “beneficial owners” and their home or residence address, birth date, id number from the owner’s drivers license or passport and a picture of the owner’s drivers license or passport.  A beneficial owner is a person or entity that owns 25% or more of an entity or that controls the company.

FinCen reports for entities formed after 2021 are due 14 days after the entity is formed.  FinCEN reports for entities formed before 2022 are due not later than one year after the regulations take effect.  The regulations have not yet taken taken effect.  FinCEN has not yet created a system to file FinCEN reports so no company is subject to the $500/day fine at this time.

To learn more about the Corporate Transparency Act go to FinCEN Filer, LLC’s, website and sign up for its free newsletter.  The newsletter has informative CTA articles and it will alert subscribers to CTA developments and when it becomes possible to file FinCEN reports. FinCEN Filer, LLC’s business is collecting information about beneficial owners, preparing a company’s FinCEN report and filing the FinCEN report with FinCEN.  FinCEN Filer, LLC’s has an affiliate program that pays a commission to affiliates who refer customers who hire FinCEN Filer, LLC.

  • IRA LLC Formation Questionnaire – Also known as the “Check Book LLC.”  Form this type of LLC to be owned by your IRA account so you can invest your IRA money in non-traditional assets such as real estate.  The manager of the LLC is usually the owner of the IRA.  The manager runs the LLC and makes all investment decisions.

  • Hire us to document the addition or removal of one or more members or managers of an Arizona LLC.  Submit our Member or Manager Change Questionnaire – Members who are being removed should sign an Assignment of Membership Interest Agreement.  This is the document that transfers the outgoing member’s membership interest to whoever is acquiring the membership interest.  If the company is member managed it must file an Amendment to its Articles of Organization with the Arizona Corporation Commission to add new members and/or remove former members.  If the company is manager managed it must file an Amendment to its Articles of Organization if there is an addition or removal of any member who owned or will own 20% or more of the profits of the company.  If the company is manager managed and any manager is added or removed the company needs to amend its Articles of Organization to reflect the change.  Whenever there is a change in members or managers the parties should sign an amended Operating Agreement to reflect the changes.  You can purchase all of these documents using our questionnaire.
  • Hire us to prepare a custom Buy Sell Agreement for multi-member LLCs by submitting our Buy Sell Agreement Questionnaire.  This is the exit strategy.  Without a Buy Sell Agreement members of an AZ LLC are stuck with each other for perpetuity.
