Administering an estate is a job. Responsibilities of an executor or administrator include the collection of assets, preparation of estate and final income tax returns, payment of all estate tax and administrative expenses of the estate, and delivery of assets to the intended beneficiaries or trustees of trusts established by a decedent. Because of the immense responsibilities and duties that the role entails, it is critically important to select individuals who will approach the task with the diligence it requires.

  • What are the consequences if someone assumes a fiduciary role without being formally appointed?   [20 minutes]
