Estate & Trust Tax Preparation
Estate and Trust taxation is a complex area of the law. However the importance of correctly preparing fiduciary returns can not be overstated. We have extensive experience and ongoing engagements in this area, allowing us to provide you with the services you need.

Our level of tax knowledge and our years of experience dealing with many taxing authorities, provide us with a level of competence that can ensure our clients they are being properly represented before the various federal and state tax agencies.
