Wife is getting 300k from a family property sale

So my wifes family owned a very expensive property that we just heard was sold and each family member gets $300,000. 


I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions on what we can do to avoid taxes and do something smart with the money.  We have a few kids but they already have college funds and are taken care of in that regard.  If you guys have any ideas Id really appreciate it.  We were leaning towards a Living Trust and Im thinking we definitely need to speak with an accountant.


Since this is the OG Im hopping to hear about some crazy shit youd do with that amount of cash..... if it was all coming to me shit would be a different story......




Thanks in advance, please enjoy this pic



Thanks in advance

50k for each kid for when they graduate college and get their first real job. Pay down your debts and put the rest in a retirement fund. You're extremely fortunate to be getting this, use it to improve your familys quality of life. Phone Post 3.0

pay off as much debt as you can.

Now is not the best time to start experimenting with coke. Other than that you'll be fine. Phone Post 3.0

Is it an inheritance or just profit from estate sale? The tax laws are conplicated and i know fuck all about them. Definitely consult a tax pro in your area. Phone Post 3.0
