Estate and Trust Tax Planning and Preparation
We help you understand how the tax law applies to your situation and handle the affairs of an estate or trust. In preparing these tax filings we assist the executor and family members in understanding what tax filings are needed and how it impacts their heirs.
We evaluate the assets including bank accounts, stocks, real estate, IRAs, pensions, annuities and all pertinent items related to an estate. We can then determine which filings are needed and prepare the returns.
If you are setting up a trust, we will collaborate with your attorney so that both aspects of the trust – the financial part and the legal part – are addressed comprehensively.
Frequently asked questions
How much does it cost to put your personal return on extension?
There is no cost to putting your return on extension but the total amount of tax that is due for the year must be paid with the extension. The government does not grant you an extension to pay the money due just to file the return.
Do I need to make estimated tax payments?
No, but if you owe tax at the end of the year you will be subject to penalties and interest for not making estimated tax payments.
Do I need to electronically file my returns?
Yes, unless you specifically opt out of the filing.
