Leading Estate Planning Expert and Attorney Provides New Book Outlining Steps Needed for Estate Administration

What's the Deal with Estate Administration
April 2, 2015: People Tested Publications has just released its latest book in their “What’s the Deal With..?” ® book series. This new book, which deals with issues facing executors and family members who need to execute the estate of a loved one, is called “What’s the Deal with Estate Administration?” and it’s authored by noted expert in the field, Peggy R. Hoyt, who has a law practice that deals with elder law and estate matters. Peggy is also the author of “What’s the Deal with Estate Planning?” which was published in 2014.

Jack Tatar, Publisher of People Tested Publications says, “I’m proud and excited to have Peggy write a much needed and vital complementary book to her first “What’s the Deal With..?” ® book. Together, the two books provide important information for dealing with a matter than so many of us have to plan for and deal with – planning our own estate and administrating a loved ones. The laws haven’t made it any easier for people to deal with these matters and I’m particularly happy that Peggy has outlined the necessary steps for estate administration as it’s a matter that people have to deal with when they are saddened and need to focus on the loss of a loved one and those emotions, not the frustrating aspects of dealing with an estate. Fortunately, Peggy’s books make these issues easy to understand and lay out a process in a friendly, caring and expertly manner.”

In this book, Peggy deals with the mystery of estate administration in a straight-forward and easy-to-understand format. The book points out that estate administration is essentially a three-step process:
1. Identifying, gathering and valuing estate assets
2. Identifying and paying all creditors, including taxes
3. Distributing the remaining estate assets to the proper beneficiaries

Included in those three important steps are lots of additional steps intended to comply with relevant state and federal laws. This book will help you navigate some of the most important estate administration questions you’ll encounter.
Some of the topics What’s the Deal with Estate Administration? tackles are: What to do (and NOT to do) when a love ones dies; How to handle probate; The difference between wills and trusts; The importance of asset ownership; Avoiding the morbid scavenger hunt; Dealing with income, estate and other possible taxes; Pre-planning your memorial service and Accomplishing your own estate planning goals.
