We own nothing. Even if we bought everything.
If we own nothing, even if we bought everything, then who owns everything?
The government. Everything is just rented from them.
Confused? Let me explain.
Imagine you own a house. Then you die. Your tagapagmana would then inherit it, right?
The government is always on top of the list of everyone’s tagapagmana. Not your kids. Not your wife. Not your relatives.
When you die, it’s like returning everything you’ve “borrowed” (even if you bought it) from them.
Your real tagapagmana will settle the estate taxes.
If they don’t, then they don’t get to keep the house. If my memory serves me right, they have six (6) months to settle it, from the time of your death. Your heirs’ estate taxes can be computed in below’s table.
What if you want to transfer your properties ASAP? No more dancing with death. Is that possible?
But if you’re doing that just to avoid estate taxes, you’re in for a treat. I’m kidding. Because this time, your properties will now be subject for Donor’s Tax:

We just busted the “I no longer need insurance because I’m already wealthy” myth. The truth is, the wealthier we get, the more estate taxes we’ll pay. Thus the need for more insurance coverage. Unless you want the government to inherit all your properties.
We don’t want that, do we?
