Estate, Trust & Gift Tax

Effective Planning Strategies

We can help with your specialized needs

Whether you are a high net worth individual whose estate plan includes several trusts, the newly named executor of a family member’s estate, a parent wanting to gift a sizable portion of a down payment to a child, or anyone else with a question about trusts, estates, and gifting, Hancock Askew stands ready to help.  We will make sure that you understand the strategies and tax implications of your estate and gifting plan and will help you comply with the sometimes confusing filing requirements.

We work in coordination with your attorney and other advisors to ensure that your estate and gift plan minimizes estate and gift taxes while carrying out the objectives of the plan.  And we ensure that you comply with all tax filing requirements.
