There is no fee schedule for estate returns. Each estate is different. Preparation of the return includes detailed entries of all assets and liabilities. Preparation of the return is very time intensive due to the entry details. My fees for preparing estate returns have ranged from $2,300 to $12,000. It is not uncommon for fees to exceed $25K or $35K when there is a large portfolio.
