Gloucester County Executor Expense Reimbursement – Mileage

From our “Ask a Question” Mailbag: Gloucester County Executor Expense Reimbursement

Most Recently Updated July 9, 2018.

“Is mileage reimbursable? I am the executor of the estate. I have been doing a lot of driving back and forth. The estate is located in New Jersey.”

Gloucester County Executor Expense Reimbursement

Your expenses incurred due to the estate are reimbursed from estate assets. Typical examples are filing fees, parking fees, and money that you pay to have the estate assets secured or cleaned.

For Example:

If you would have paid the airfare to attend your mother’s funeral whether you were the executor or not, then you would not be reimbursed. You will be reimbursed for travel to the Surrogate’s Office for filing your mother’s will. 

The Reasonable Amount

You will be reimbursed a “reasonable amount.” The IRS issued its 2015 standard mileage rates and effective January 1, 2015 the IRS allowed rate is 57.5 cents per mile driven for business.

This rate applies to the miles you drive as the executor. These are guideline amounts, that you may use, and which the other beneficiaries can object, but they certainly give you a starting point.

Executor expense reimbursement is only part of the overall probate process. By all means, if you wish to learn more, please read my more detailed article, The Probate Process All You Need to Know.
