In MD, the executor has to render an accounting and must have discharged his duties as such prior to doing so. The time limits are, by statute:
§ 7-305. When to render accounts.
(a) In general.- Accounts shall be rendered by the personal representative:
(1) Within 9 months from the date of the appointment of the personal representative;
(2) Within 6 months after the account referred to in paragraph (1) of this subsection and within 6 months after each account thereafter until the filing of the final account;
(3) Upon termination of the appointment of the personal representative, as provided in Title 6, Subtitle 3 of this article; and
(4) At the other times ordered by the court.
(b) Extensions.- Upon written application of the personal representative, the court for good cause shown may extend to a specified date the time for rendering an account.
If distributions and the accounting haven't been made and filed within these parameters, you should petition the court that they/it be done.
