Estate Planning

We are 18 years into a our second marriage and might have a need for a QTIP trust. Can you give us more information about it? Thanks. -HC & Lee
I’m thinking of adding my sons to the deed on my home for my living trust will. If I do, will my home be protected if I should go into a nursing home or can it still be sold for expenses by the government (Medicare/medical)? Also, since I am on disability and don’t really need the deductions at this point in my life, once I do add my sons to the deed, can either one of them pay the taxes and claim the full property tax deduction? I know they can’t benefit from the interest because they’re not on my loan, but since the taxes are not in escrow and paid separately each year, can they claim the deduction as long as it’s agreed upon by myself and the others? -John
