HANDLING DEBTS AND TAXES

To start the probate procedure, a petition is submitted to the court petitioning to have the client appointed as the case administrator. At the time the petition is filed a notice is published for all creditors and notice is remitted to all known heirs. The notice must be published even if there are no known creditors.

Creditors must present their claims within four months after the notice is published. Any claims not presented are forever barred from collection other then secured creditors and taxing authorities. In the event there are claims filed, the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will always attempt to negotiate the reduction of the debt thereby preserving the assets for the beneficiaries.

It will be necessary to have an accountant prepare and file federal and state income tax returns for the decedent for the period ending with the date of death. Income tax returns for the estate for each year until the final distribution will also be necessary. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will provide recommendations about these matters once the probate process is underway.
