Estate administration can be a lengthy and complex process rife with potential pitfalls and costly missteps. Even the most seemingly straightforward case can quickly become challenging to navigate. So, where do you start? What documentation do you need? Which of the decedent's assets are subject to administration and which are not? What paperwork needs to be filed (and when)?
Get the answers to these and many other practical questions as seasoned practitioners guide you through the mechanics of the entire process, from file organization to final distribution of assets.
Designed to help you master the basics of estate administration in North Carolina, this program covers the following essential concepts: exceptions to formal estate administration; pre-qualification, qualification and post-qualification procedures; handling various types of assets, including business assets and retirement accounts; preparing and filing inventories, annual accounts and final accounts of the decedent's estate, including distributions and apportionment considerations; overview of federal estate tax issues; and filing requirements and other matters pertaining to the decedent's tax returns.
