Executor Expense Reimbursement in Burlington County, New Jersey

As the executor of an estate in Burlington County, NJ, your expenses incurred in handling the estate are reimbursed from the estate assets. Typical examples: filing fees, parking fees, travel fees, and money that you pay to have the estate assets secured or cleaned. 

For example, the cost of the airfare to attend your mother’s funeral would not be reimbursed. However, if you had to travel to the Burlington County Surrogate’s office to file the will, that cost can be reimbursed.

This includes mileage. The IRS issued standard mileage rates. Effective January 1, 2015, the IRS mileage allowed rate is 57.5 cents per mile.

These are guideline amounts that you may use and which the other beneficiaries can object to, but they certainly give you a starting point.
