Hawkins Team's Services and Specialties
The Hawkins Team is based in Kirkland, WA, and serves clients through-out the US and around the world. Many clients work in the Tech industry, and the team provides tax planning for option exercises and vests. Other clients are in the US on employment visas, and bring with them the complexities of having financial and other business assets outside the US. Still others are working overseas and need ongoing US tax compliance and coordination with taxation in their home county.
The Team has a robust estate and trust tax practice. Clients include estates requiring Federal and/or State estate and income tax filings, as well as the final Form 1040 for decedent. Although the Federal estate tax threshold is high, many surviving spouses file Form 706 to elect portability of any unused exclusion. The team also provides tax planning and compliance services for trusts. They often collaborate with attorneys and fiduciaries to determine tax efficient distributions in accordance with the terms of wills or trust documents.
