First, what qualifies as a funeral expense on the IRS Form 706? Generally all expenditures actually incurred in connection with the funeral and burial services are potentially deductible for Federal Estate Tax purposes. Such expenditures include, but are not limited to, expenses for the casket, burial vault, urn, undertaker's fee, flowers provided by the estate, food for mourners, clothing purchased for burial, and transportation of the deceased to the place of burial as well as the tip your executor might make to your chosen religious representative.
