Estate Planning

We can provide estate planning recommendations to help your estate planning team minimize taxes and preserve estate assets for distribution to your heirs. Your estate planning team, which consists of your trust officer, attorney, accountant and insurance representative, implements your objectives and desires. Recommendations you choose to utilize should be reviewed by the team to make sure input from all members is considered. Commercial Bank of Texas can coordinate the process to insure your objectives and desires are met and the team stays on schedule.

Estate Settlement

Estate settlement and probate can be confusing and often places an emotional and time burden on your family and friends. You can provide for professional assistance by choosing Commercial Bank of Texas as your independent executor. As your personal representative, we will gather your assets, manage the assets during administration and distribute the assets of your estate as your will directs. Your estate can be settled economically, without needless delay, and by our staff which is experienced in the complete process.

Gifts in Trust

Charitable trusts name a charity to receive either income or remainder gifts from the trust. These gifts in trust may be established to pay income to your family or to a charity for a specific period of time. By planning gifts to family members and charities you may reduce the estate tax burden on your family at your death. We will manage these gifts in trust as you have designated.
Living Trust
A living trust functions during your life by providing protection in case of illness or disability. A living trust can also function after your death as a part of your estate plan. We provide the investment management, day-to-day record keeping and bill payment to the degree you choose. Our personalized investment management helps build financial security for you and your family.
Testamentary Trust
CBTx can administer testamentary trusts created by your will. By allowing us to serve as trustee after your death, your family members will have added financial security and possible protection from creditors for assets placed in your testamentary trust. The asset protection benefits can be provided to your family with the use of a testamentary trust and continues only for the term of the trust.
