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.

Klenk Law is an exceptional practice. Their fine lawyers and staff team up to produce excellent results for their clients. They excel at explaining the often cryptic laws and policies that govern estate planning right down to the complexities of the various "trust" frameworks. Peter himself manages each client together with his great team, and he has a rare quality to be both a walking encyclopedia of planning minutia and also one of the most likable lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is truly generous in intellect and in his personal approach to getting the "big picture" for complex family structures. I trust him implicitly to help me make the right choices for the future. In short, Klenk Law is a gem of a firm.
