Death and taxes… and what you need to know

As you may or may not know, my younger sister recently passed away and Ali and I just returned from the funeral in New York. Thank you to those of you that expressed your well wishes to us.
On that sad note, I want you to know that even when there is a death in the family, there may be tax filings, from final 1040s to estate tax returns and the estate’s income return.

I am an expert on the preparation of these tax returns in addition to the other more common ones such as federal individual, multi-state, gift, 990s etc as well as the following corporate returns.

  • Form 1040 Schedule C, Profit or Loss From Business (Sole Proprietorship)
  • Form 1040 Schedule F, Profit or Loss From Farming.
  • Form 1065, U.S. Return of Partnership Income.
  • Form 1120, U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return.
  • Form 1120-S, U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation.

It is important that you understand the portability rules between spouses and how we use these rules to offset any taxes the ultimate beneficiaries may face.

You seek out a financial planner for your estate financial planning, should you not consult a tax professional like an Enrolled Agent for your tax planning?
