Cremation, Death, and Taxes - Oh My!

Published: September 4, 2018

Cremation, Death, and Taxes - Oh My!

Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 11 AM and 5 PM
Glende-Nilson Funeral Home - Fergus Falls

Join the staff of Glende-Nilson Funeral Home and accountant Dic Pickett of Pickett & Demuth, Ltd. for an engaging seminar covering everything you wanted to know about cremation, death, and taxes.

With President Trump signing the final version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 into law, you likely have questions as to how this massive overhaul of our tax system affects you and your family. Will my personal income taxes be lower? Can I really file my tax return on a postcard? Will the charitable contributions I make still be deductible? Is a reverse mortgage a good option for me?

Other topics include recent changes to state medical assistance guidelines, how they may impact you and your family, and why it is more important than ever to have a plan in place to cover your final expenses. With more families looking for flexibility related to where and when a service or celebration of life is held, we will discuss why cremation may be a choice for you to consider.

A light lunch will be served, and door prizes will be drawn. As space is limited, please RSVP by calling the funeral home at 736-7064 or e-mailing
