Specialized Services

Farm Preparation

Tax time can be stressful for any business, but for farmers, it can be an especially confusing time. Farmers must follow industry–specific tax rules that can leave many confused as what to do.

The tax rules for farmers are significantly different than those of other businesses. You need an accountant who specializes in farm taxes and can help navigate the IRS rules to help you get the most deductions. Any major farm purchase or strategy change should be preceded by a call to an accountant to analyze the tax implications of the change.

A farmer’s best friend is their accountant and we at Catherine A. Rothschild CPA PC would like to be that friend you can rely on!

Trusts & Estates

Not all Americans are affected by estate and trust income taxes. Those that are can find themselves facing very complicated tax decisions. Since this issue affects only a top-tier percentage of taxpayers, many accountants are inadequately experienced in estate and trust income tax return issues and are unable to spot the opportunities, let alone develop solutions. Catherine A. Rothschild CPA PC, on the other hand, is a tax and estate planning firm that has handled hundreds of estate and trust income tax returns.

If you have an estate plan or trust in place, or are considering creating one, and would like dynamic, dependable assistance, feel free to contact us. We offer a no-cost consultation to all of our new clients as well as expert tax planning for:

  • Estate and trust income tax
  • Revocable trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts
  • Living trusts
  • General estates

...and more! Contact us to discuss your specific needs.
