Get Expert Washington Estate Tax Assistance

Navigating the complexities of estate taxes and inheritance tax can be overwhelming when a close family member dies. At such a difficult time, ensuring tax compliance might seem like a daunting task.

Here are the key points WATAX will focus on filing taxes for a deceased family member:

  • Research Tax Compliance History: We'll assess their last filed returns, uncover any unfiled ones, and identify any past tax liabilities.
  • File Unfiled Returns: Rely on WATAX guidance to file three to six years of returns based on their financial situation, ensuring closure without scrutiny.
  • Smart Tax Payment Strategy: Protect yourself and heirs by strategizing payment from the deceased person's remaining assets. (As executor, you can be held liable if you distribute estate assets without paying the IRS)
  • Estate Tax Considerations: Most estates avoid taxation on assets left to heirs, but if an estate remains open, we'll handle EIN acquisition and Estate tax returns (Form 1041) with payments.
