Are you the executor of a recently deceased family member or friend? Estate tax returns are a complex process and having the right help guide you through it is valuable. We sit down with you to review what the estate needs to do to meet its final filing obligations and help you determine what your responsibilities as the executor are. We are also available to help deal with CRA where there are any inquires or audits of the estate.
