If you are ever in the position of being the executor of an estate, you know that it can be a thankless and difficult job. However, the good news is that help is available from a place you might not think to look--CPAs!
Many CPAs, including Benjamin H. Johnson CPA, offer assistance to estate executors. We can assist with the preparation of reports that must be made to various county, state, and federal agencies, including the report that must be submitted to the county Commissioner of Accounts showing the proper distribution of assets.
We'll make sure you are aware of all applicable laws and regulations that you, as the executor of an estate, need to know--including the Virginia law that says that estate executors may take a fee of 5% of the estate as compensation for performing their duties!
