Trust & Estate

Are you the fiduciary (legal owner/manager) of an asset, or group of assets belonging to someone else? Along with this responsibility comes a great deal of tax and accounting responsibility, with state and federal tax return preparation, meeting distribution guidelines, and periodic reports about the assets’ stewardship to beneficiaries of the trust and estate and, in some cases, to the court as well. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain good records which will enable the fiduciary to prepare these reports and also provide protection in case any actions are questioned.

We also prepare the tax returns, trust accounting, and other forms or elections that may be required.
