Legal and tax work is often required after a death. Probate Court filings are usually necessary, although they can be minimized through proper planning. Although there have been some recent favorable changes in state and federal estate tax laws, many estates are large enough to require estate tax returns to be filed and taxes paid within nine months after a person’s death.
