Tax and Family Trust Law

Taylor MacLellan Cochrane carries an extremely active practice in the advanced areas of tax planning and tax reorganization. This involves organizing and carrying out plans to complete transfers of wealth from one family generation to the next, establishing Family Trusts to benefit current and future generations of family members, triggering the use of capital gains exemptions, completing estate freezes and wasting freezes to minimize or eliminate Capital Gains Taxes on death (both for active businesses and investment portfolios), and various other techniques to reduce tax on earnings and/or client estates. Tax planning and reorganizational work has been completed for Taylor MacLellan Cochrane's clients in various fields, including professionals, fishing and farming businesses, and corporations, holders of investments, and the many owner/operators of businesses we represent.

Taylor MacLellan Cochrane's Tax Team represents clients across main land Nova Scotia completing extensive planning work for clients. We consistently work with clients' accountants and their regular lawyer to review and carry out tax planning. We can and do assist both clients and fellow professionals, from either the legal or accounting fields, in this area of law.

Taylor MacLellan Cochrane's tax team would be pleased to assist you in your tax planning and tax reorganization needs whether you are a fellow professional or a person who wants to organize their affairs most tax advantageously.
