Gift Tax Return Preparation

Of all the areas we handle here at Carte Hall Certified Public Accountants, the gift tax return remains one of the most confounding subjects for many clients – and for good reason. The IRS laws regarding gift and estate taxes are quite complex. Navigating them can be cumbersome. With hefty penalties and tax levies possible for filers (and heirs on down the line) even decades after an innocent mistake on Form 709, it makes sense to have a knowledgeable accountant help you handle the preparation of this form. At Carte Hall Certified Public Accountants, we invite you to access our in-depth knowledge of the rules for the gift tax and “generation skipping tax” to make the best decisions for yourself – and your estate.

Fiduciary Income Tax Return Preparation – Elkins, WV

Trusts and Estates
Have you been appointed as the trustee of a trust? Did a loved one die, leaving you to be appointed as the executor, executrix, or administrator of an estate? If so, you are considered the fiduciary of that trust or estate – and responsible for accurately overseeing all aspects (including filing tax returns).

It is important to keep in mind that the Internal Revenue Service views decedents and their estates as separate taxable entities – and the rules are different for each. It can sometimes be difficult to determine exactly what property and assets should be reported on each type of return and the rules continually change. If you would like to ensure that your fiduciary duty is carried out appropriately, in accordance law, and that you are properly submitting all taxes due while allowing the trust or estate to claim all legal deductions, we can help. Carte Hall Certified Public Accountants in Elkins can assist you with all aspects of preparing and filing the federal Form 1041 (US Income Tax Return for Trusts and Estates), as well as relevant local and state returns within our service jurisdiction.
