Federal, state and local income taxes — Our attorneys have experience preparing all types of tax returns, including the following:

  • Individual income tax returns
  • Business tax returns, including quarterly returns

Estate taxes Estates may be subject to estate tax as well as income tax. Federal tax laws apply when you have an estate worth more than $11.2 million, $22.4 million if you're married. When you are faced with a complex estate tax problem, our attorneys will work with you to maximize your tax savings, while explaining estate planning decisions.

Gift taxes — Individuals often choose to gift money to relatives or friends in an attempt to reduce the value of their estates. The annual gift exclusion for 2018 is $15,000.

Inheritance taxes Pennsylvania inheritance taxes can take a substantial portion of an inheritance. By utilizing wills, trusts and other estate planning tools, you can mitigate this impact. Unlike the federal estate tax, there is no minimum dollar amount for the estate to be taxed; all Pennsylvania estates of any value are subject to taxation.
