Planning solutions for estates + trusts.

Fiduciary taxation involves overseeing complex estates and trusts and finding tax advantages for every transaction to maximize the potential of your loved ones’ inheritance. TK+H has over 35 years of experience offering sound guidance to personal representatives and estate managers, ensuring they avoid issues with misspent monies and mismanaged estate assets, and providing the necessary information to keep beneficiaries properly informed.

We can assist with settling a decedent’s accounts while the estate settles or support executors with their responsibilities. In addition, we can prepare fiduciary accountings, provide tax planning, calculate distribution amounts, and create schedules to allocate assets for beneficiaries — all while ensuring they follow local and state tax law and minimize estate tax obligations.
