What if I add my children’s name to the deed?
Client typically ask about adding a child’s name to the deed to protect against long-term care costs. Adding a child’s name to the title of property makes the property subject to the child’s creditors. Additionally, if the child predeceases the client, the client must pay PA inheritance tax on the real estate. Client would pay PA inheritance tax at a rate of 4.5%.
