BLS is located in Delaware, one of five states without sales or use tax, and BLS has an extensive Estate & Trust team. These two factors put us in the unique position to assist you with making the best tax and estate decisions regarding your art or special collection pieces. Let BLS help you manage art as a financial asset.
