The Probate Process

You won’t have to worry about making repairs or finding a real estate agent. We’ll take care of everything so you can focus on what’s important to you.
What is Probate?
Probate is the legal process of distributing a person’s assets after they die. If the deceased person had a will, the executor of the will is responsible for distributing the assets according to the will. If the deceased person did not have a will, the court will appoint an administrator to distribute the assets.
How Does Probate Work?
The probate process can be complicated, but we’re here to help. We’ll work with you to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
1. The executor or administrator of the estate will file a petition with the court.
2. The court will issue a notice to all interested parties, such as creditors and beneficiaries.
3. The court will appoint an administrator or executor to manage the estate.
4. The administrator or executor will inventory the assets of the estate and pay any debts and taxes owed by the estate.
5. The administrator or executor will distribute the assets of the estate to the beneficiaries according to the terms of the will or state law.
Types of inheritance
There are two types of inheritance: real property and personal property. Real property includes the deceased person’s house, land, or any other type of real estate. Personal property includes the deceased person’s belongings, such as furniture, jewelry, and clothing. Inheritance laws vary from state to state, so it’s important to consult an attorney to find out what type of inheritance you’re entitled to.
If you’re inheriting a property, you may be able to sell it through an estate sale. An estate sale is a type of public auction where the deceased person’s belongings are sold to the highest bidder. The proceeds from the sale are used to pay off the deceased person’s debts and taxes.
Estate sales are usually handled by a professional company. The company will take care of all the details, such as advertising the sale and setting up the auction. You’ll just need to provide the company with a list of items to be sold. Keep in mind that federal estate tax may be due on the sale of the property. Estate taxes are based on the value of the property, so you’ll need to consult a tax professional to find out if you owe any estate taxes.
If you’re inheriting a property, you may be responsible for inheritance taxes. Inheritance taxes are levied by the state on the value of the property. The amount of inheritance tax you’ll owe depends on the value of the property and your relationship to the deceased person. Inheritance tax rates can range from 0% to 20%. Also, some states exempt certain types of property, such as a primary residence, from inheritance taxes. Other tax implications may apply, so it’s important to consult a tax advisor to find out what you’ll owe.
How to Avoid Capital Gains Tax on inherited property
If you’re selling an inherited property, you may be able to avoid capital gains tax on the sale. Capital gains tax is a tax on the profit you make from selling an asset, such as a stock or a house. In order to avoid capital gains tax on the sale of an inherited property, you must file a form with the IRS called a “step-up in basis.” A step-up in basis allows you to increase the cost basis of the property to its current market value. This will reduce or eliminate any capital gain on the sale of the property. Capital gains taxes can range from 0% to 20%, depending on your tax bracket.
