Reasons to make gifts prior to passing away

Georgia residents who are planning on making a gift after they die may benefit as much or more by doing it while still alive. One reason to consider giving a planned gift prior to death is to witness the joy and adoration that is showered upon the giver by the recipient of the money or assets. Another good reason to make the gift while still alive is to ensure that it gets made properly.
