Tax Preparation Attorneys

The Law Offices of Kathleen D. Schneider maintains a robust tax law practice that includes tax planning and IRS representation, as well as qualified tax preparation for businesses and individuals. We serve clients from all parts of the world.

With years of experience at a large public accounting firm, eight years as tax counsel for Mellon Bank and 12 years with the Federal Reserve, Kathleen Schneider brings unique qualifications and breadth of experience to the practice of tax law.

Frequent changes in the federal, state and local tax law make preparing your own tax documentation a challenge. It's easy to overlook deductions and credits you are owed and miss opportunities to optimize your tax situation. There is no substitute for the assistance of a seasoned professional. We can provide insight and practical advice about how you can take advantage of the most recent changes to the tax laws.

Federal, state and local 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 and Trust income tax returns
  • Tax compliance related to unfiled tax returns from previous years

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 $5.34 million. Double that 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.

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.
