Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An executor is a person appointed in a will to carry out the instructions and wishes of the deceased. Often the tasks involved are cumbersome, complicated, and time-consuming. This Handbook outlines the duties and responsibilities of the executor and provides a walking tour of the procedures that settle an estate. There is no skimping on the basics here. The authors understand what a first-time executor needs to know and present that information in plain English. Coverage includes a thorough explanation of what an executor does, instruction on dealing with the deceased's assets and liabilities, and advice on administering probate. In addition to the competent, methodical text, they offer tables of state income tax rates, intestacy laws, state-by-state probate requirements, and executor's fees. Highly recommended for libraries with estate-planning collections.-Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y.
Library Journal
Michigan Assistant Attorney General Hughes and Klein (emeritus, social sciences, Michigan State Univ.) provide nonprofessional estate representatives with an understanding of the duties and procedures for settling an estate. They describe how to read and understand a will, locate and manage the assets of the estate, and cope with the probate process. One chapter discusses working with the testator before his or her death to create a letter of instruction to help settle the estate. In this new edition, the authors provide coverage of how to settle trusts and use pay-on-death bank accounts to help keep money out of probate. Numerous charts and tables show tax rates and exemptions, but dates on some of the tables go back to 1997 and 1998 and will need to be updated by using sources that reflect recent legislative changes. Libraries should also consider Charles K. Plotnick's How To Settle an Estate: A Manual for Executors and Trustees (LJ 6/1/98), F. William Hauer Jr.'s Where There's a Will: A Guide for the Executor or Administrator of an Estate (Edgewood, 1998), and James John Jurinski's Probate and Settling an Estate (Barron's, 1997).
