Understanding New Jersey Death Taxes
One of the most important duties of an executor or administrator is to properly file state and federal death tax returns. These returns are very detailed, and most people find it necessary to hire a professional who is familiar with New Jersey’s estate and tax laws.
At Levine DeSantis, LLC, we have more than 20 years of experience helping executors, beneficiaries and family members navigate the complex New Jersey and federal tax systems. Our estate planning attorneys are detail-oriented and work hard to ensure everything is filled out correctly before the returns are filed. This helps you to avoid paying too much and prevents future visits from the state or federal government asking for more money.
Experienced Help Filing Death Taxes
We help with estate planning and setting up trusts, but a large portion of our practice involves helping people who suffered a death in the family – we consider this to be one of the most important parts of our estate administration practice.
Death tax returns must be filed within a specified period of time. It is very difficult to get an extension from either the state or federal government, so timely and accurate filing is essential to closing an estate. Failing to get the returns in on time can result in fees, penalties and additional interest on top of what an estate might already owe. When you contact us, we will immediately begin assessing the estate and its assets. Our attorneys do in-depth investigative research because often people do not truly know everything a loved one owned before he or she died.
