Tax Planning Strategies for Yourself, Your Business
and Your Estate

We’re all familiar with the old cliché that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. When you hire Angela Hawekotte, A Professional Law Corporation, we can help you prepare for both (from a legal perspective). Angela Hawekotte has decades of experience as an estate law attorney and has a background as a certified public accountant. As such, she is often able to see opportunities and pitfalls that other lawyers might miss.

The goals of thorough estate planning include minimizing taxes, reducing or eliminating the need for probate, and maximizing the available assets that will pass to heirs and beneficiaries. We are ready to help you with all of these goals and more by utilizing our knowledge of both estate law and tax law.

Your Guide to Tax Matters in Estate Administration

Tax considerations continue to be important even after death. The estate administration process includes filing a final tax return on behalf of the decedent and the estate. This is one of the many aspects of the job that executors find to be more complicated than they expected. As an estate attorney and as a former practicing CPA (inactive license), Ms. Hawekotte is well-equipped to guide you through this process and ensure that the return you prepare is thorough and accurate.

Entity Formation and Tax Help for New Small Businesses

Business structuring and tax management strategies are essential elements of any business. Yet they are often overlooked in the rush to get a business off the ground. We can help you choose the most appropriate structure for your new business and get your business registered with the IRS. We will also walk you through how your business will be taxed and how you can most efficiently manage expense/income tracking, reporting and other important aspects of tax compliance.
