Praise for the previous editions:
"Highly recommended..."—Library Journal

The Executor’s Handbook, Third Edition is a step-by-step guide to settling an estate for personal representatives, administrators, and beneficiaries. This informative volume provides all the information needed to understand the role of executor, to determine if you are the right person for the job, as well as how to carry out the various functions. It explains everything from the provisions of a will to key legal terms to liquidating assets.

Because laws change on a regular basis, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to cover the latest rules and procedures. Updates include the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001—which revised federal gift and estate tax law—as well as all state law tables.

New and updated coverage includes:

  • Death and burial benefits
  • Death without a will
  • First steps following death
  • Funeral, burial, and cremation
  • Income, estate, and inheritance taxes
  • Probate administrations
  • Protecting survivors
  • Settling a trust
  • and much more.
