Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will do what I can to help....Are you asking about filing fees or any fee that the executor is entitled to?..thanksBarrister
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The attorney fees for handling aNJ IT-R Inheritance Form or the NJ Estate Tax equivalent of Federall form 706..

Expert:  Barrister replied 2 years ago.
Ok, thank you for that information. The law in NJ requires attorneys to charge a "reasonable fee" and not a percentage of the estate, for their services. So this is a matter of negotiation between the executor or Administrator and the attorney. NJ only sets by statute the compensation that the executor is entitled to...thanksBarrister
