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

“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.

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.
