Lawyer To Help With Post-Death Estate Taxes

If an elderly relative died and left behind significant assets, the estate taxes the federal government claims may be surprisingly high. Depending upon the amount of assets, as high as 40 percent may go to taxes.

If you have been appointed the family representative or executor responsible for final administration of a decedent's estate in Central Florida, your first consideration should be reducing the amount of death taxes, as well estate and trust income taxes.
