What question do you hear most often from clients?

Being that I'm a Tax Partner, I hear from my clients, "How can you help me save tax?" while meeting their estate planning objectives. Of course, clients are not specialists in tax so we have to do this in a manner that they can understand and so part of my job is explaining very complex tax matters in a way that clients understand and that makes me happy because I love to do that.
