As a Resident Alien married to an American, I keep being told we should have a Living Trust otherwise should my husband die before I do, I would be harder hit with taxes than I would if I were a US citizen.
Can anyone shed light on whether this is in fact the case - or as a 'alien' are inheritance taxes higher anyway? At the moment, everything is in joint ownership.
