Estate Tax Attorney

The estate tax professionals at Edmonds Law Office help clients structure your assets and legal documents so that your property is distributed to beneficiaries the way you want, while minimizing costs, hassles, and taxes. Estate taxes differ from state to state, and federal estate tax rates and rules differ as well. To eliminate or reduce estate taxes for your estate, it is important to speak with an experienced estate planning attorney who can guide you through the entire process.

An experienced estate tax lawyer can explain the differences in estate taxes, explain estate concepts and planning options, and help you determine whether your estate is vulnerable to such taxes.
