Probate/Estate and Trust Administration
From simple probate matters to complex estate and trust administration, we have the skills to help you get through the process. Our experience includes handling estates as small as $5,000.00 and as large as $40,000,000.00.
Whether or not the probate process is necessary, we can assist with the preparation of federal estate tax returns, Kentucky inheritance tax returns, and fiduciary income tax returns with respect to the estate or any trust that is established as part of an estate. This often involves post mortem tax planning to minimize any tax liabilities. Sometimes estates have assets in multiple states – which requires a multi-state probate – and we have worked with attorneys licensed in many other states for an effective and smooth administration. The estate administration process may also involve negotiating sensitive issues among family members to avoid costly litigation.
The list of issues arising in estate administration is endless and can never be predicted. Our group of attorneys and tax professionals bring a unique teamwork approach, providing comprehensive advice in these matters.
