What Does An Executor Do?

Estate administration involves numerous responsibilities. The executor is the person in charge of these responsibilities. An executor’s duties often include:

  • Locating the deceased person’s assets and property
  • Notifying creditors and paying debts
  • Distributing assets to beneficiaries
  • Organizing financial documents and paperwork
  • Preparing and filing an inventory
  • Preparing fiduciary tax returns
  • Preparing Pennsylvania inheritance tax returns
