“Assisting clients to understand the procedures, documents, tax issues, and options available in the post-death administration of a loved one's estate is especially gratifying to me.”

Kaye Nelson applies her skills as a certified public accountant to serve Landerholm's clients who are either considering estate plans with tax-saving strategies or those who are administering a decedent's estate. Kaye's approach allows her to focus not only on the numbers but also on the individuals with whom she works. “Each client has a special set of circumstances and needs,” she explains.

Over the course of her career, Kaye has prepared several hundred, detailed, lengthy estate tax returns. Each one has been reviewed by an estate tax attorney working for the IRS, each one successfully accepted. She says it is still exciting to receive the closing letter from the IRS.
