Your personal representative or "executor" must be compassionate, responsible and decisive to settle your financial affairs and transfer your estate's assets to beneficiaries. At this time of great loss, complex estate administration tasks may hinder the grieving and healing process your loved ones deserve. Many individuals in our community have turned to CNB for these reasons, naming us to serve in the capacity of executor of their estate.
Consider some of the executor's duties:
- Working with your attorney to probate your Will
- Collecting, inventorying, valuing, and protecting the estate assets
- Paying estate taxes, expenses, and debts
- Keeping complete and accurate estate transaction records
- Preparing fiduciary income tax returns and coordinating the decedent's income and estate tax returns
- Collecting debts owed to the estate
- Distributing estate assets to heirs according to the Will
It's important to give careful thought to your choice of executor. By naming a professional executor, you can leave a feeling of security and confidence to those surviving you.
