Estate Tax Appeals Lawyers: Fighting the Government

In life, the only two certainties are death and taxes. Death may be unconquerable, but taxes can be fought. Taxes are the price we pay for a civil society, but the government’s demand for an estate tax can be fought. When someone dies, they leave behind a collection of items known as their estate, which is subject to an estate tax. Many people leave behind small estates, which may include a paid-up house, stocks, and bonds. Others may leave behind larger estates, including artwork, valuable jewelry, and interest in a flourishing business. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) takes a keen interest in people’s estates and wants to ensure that all items left to others are fully examined before the intended recipient receives them.

For larger estates, the government will often hire an independent expert to appraise the items. The expert will examine all items and determine their value, which may not have been updated for many years. For instance, a home left to others may have an increased value since its purchase many years ago, and so will the entire tax bill. This can also apply to other items, such as antique jewelry, paintings left to a foundation, and stocks whose value has significantly increased since their purchase. Some states have an estate or an inheritance tax, which may affect a small number of people. In states like New York, Maine, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Minnesota, and Maryland, the estate tax and inheritance tax may affect residents.

To avoid estate taxes, good legal counsel is a must. That includes a consultation with a lawyer who understands legal issues of this kind before embarking on estate planning. A good lawyer can help negotiate on behalf of those in line to receive a potentially large inheritance, and ensure that all necessary rules are followed. The right legal help is one way to get it all in place and ready before the IRS has the chance to ambush you with unexpected claims. Proper estate planning is crucial and can prevent the government from using your funds for purposes you do not want.
