Common duties of an executor

For some people, learning that they have been named as executor to a loved one's can be overwhelming. After all, how are you going to deal with the myriad of responsibilities that come with being an executor. For others, it is old hat, as they had expected to be the point person for handling all of the administrative duties that come with closing one's estate. Regardless of your level of experience in administering estates, it is helpful to know what to expect. With that, this post will highlight some of the duties and expectations that come with being an executor.

In fact, given how complicated the U.S. Tax Code may be, mistakes over deducting expenses are ripe to happen. Because of this, having an experienced estate administration attorney to guide you through the process is invaluable. But before hiring an attorney, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of what expenses can be deductible when administering an estate.
