Every one has a different opinion on this topic which is good.
The fact of the matter is regardless if you have a revocable trust or irrevocable trust set up, some form of taxes whether it be estate, inheritance, income, or gift tax will be payable to the IRS. Don't forget that some form of State Taxes will apply also, depending on what your individual State Tax Code is or will be in 2013.
Unfortunately you have people such as Pitch who make idiotic, immature statements that are irrelevant to the topic at hand. Just have to over look it as stupidity.
