Experienced Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas Probate Lawyer

Often, when engaging an attorney to assist with the administration of an estate, there will be many “hidden” fees or unanticipated expenses for services such as filing an estate tax return or income tax returns for an estate or trust. In addition to being an extra, unanticipated cost, such things can take an extraordinary amount of time (sometimes years).

Probate attorney and CPA Bruce Bernstien can include these extra services in his overall fee for probate services. His fee for probate administration services is competitive with the market fee for such services while including the preparation of the following tax returns that may be necessary to file during the probate administration process

  • Form 706 – United States Estate (and Generation Skipping Transfer) Tax return
  • Form 1041 – U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts
  • Form 1040 – U.S. Income Tax Return

In addition to understanding your costs up front, having an experienced tax lawyer and CPA handle your probate matter means that your matter will be handled professionally in an economical and efficient manner.
