Searching for a Florida tax attorney? When it comes to the complex field of tax law, Howard J. Wiener & Associates, P.L. is a step ahead of the competition. Few other law firms are able to match the level of expertise offered by our founding attorney, who received his board certification in tax law from the Florida Bar almost 34 years ago.

This accreditation - which qualifies Attorney Howard Wiener as an expert in his practice area is rare among attorneys in any field. When you need to consult a lawyer regarding your tax questions, look no further than our law firm for the efficient and effective representation your situation deserves. The practice areas we are prepared to help you with include the following:

Estate Taxes: Estate taxes are levied on an individual's assets after he or she is deceased and has passed on his or her property to an heir or heirs. The laws governing estate tax vary by state. In Florida, these can be found in Title XIV, Chapter 198. In 2004, the requirement for estate tax in the state was removed. In 2017, an individual could give or transfer at death up to $5,490,000 without paying estate or gift taxes. Under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, these amounts more than doubled for 2018, jumping to approximately $11,2000,000 per person, or $22,400,000 for a married couple. The amount that an individual may protect from the Federal generation-skipping transfer ("GST") tax, a tax which is assessed when assets pass to grandchildren or the equivalent, will also be increased to $11,200,000 per person under the Act.

Failure to File or Pay Taxes: If you did not file your Federal Tax Returns taxes, or were late in doing so, you could be subject to confiscatory Internal Revenue Service (IRS) penalties associated with late filed returns or unpaid taxes. We at Howard J. Wiener & Associates, P.L. understand that responsible and hardworking people can still experience financial problems due to business or family circumstances.
