Many of our clients spend part of the year in Ohio and migrate to Florida during the colder months or live in one place while owning property or business in the other state. While it's wonderful to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds, certain situations can create legal complications without careful planning.
It is vital that you speak with a West Palm Beach attorney from Rieser & Marx, LLC to discuss the most effective steps you can take towards preventing issues from arising. We can also assist you if a legal matter has already gotten complicated and you need strong representation in a dispute or litigation.
There are tax issues which need to be carefully planned for people who maintain residences in both Florida and Ohio. Our firm is knowledgeable about the tax and estate laws in both states, which is why retaining skilled legal advice from Rieser & Marx, LLC can help you prevent tax issues from arising.
For example, while Florida doesn't have a state estate tax or state income tax, part-time residents who continue to own a residence in Ohio might find that they're subject to Ohio taxes, regardless of whether they spend most of their time in Florida or intend for Florida to be their home.
Our firm offers reliable, quality legal representation and advice to part-time residents of both Ohio and Florida. There is a great benefit of hiring a licensed Florida attorney who is available in both Dayton, Ohio and West Palm Beach, Florida to represent you and provide you with legal advice, as we understand how issues can clash or become more complicated.
