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.

Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.

I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.
