We understood that a joint account with survivability was one way of avoiding estate taxesI had several accounts jointly with my mother, but it was all money she had deposited. My name was on the account because she wanted that money to go to me instead of split between me and my brother as the rest of the assets were to be split. My accountant said that it all had to be included in the valuation of the estate for estate tax purposes.Lisa
