Our Estate Taxation Practice

We handle all issues related to state or federal estate or inheritance tax issues. We will carefully review the assets and debts of the estate and identify the steps you need to take to ensure compliance with tax laws. We will help you or your accountant prepare and file all estate tax returns. We will also verify that you have taken permissible tax deductions, so that you can minimize the tax burden on the estate.

We are well-versed in the laws governing estate taxation. In Pennsylvania, trusts do not avoid taxation, but everything that passes between husband and wife is tax-free. We will also work with you during the estate planning process to help you put measures in place that minimize your estate tax burden.
