Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, mailing the order is acceptable and you need to mail a copy to each of the beneficiaries, so they have notice and may file an objection if they choose to do so. If they do not object, then you appear in court and the court issues the final order and closes the case. You file a final tax return with the IRS for the decedent and mark it as FINAL RETURN and you make payment to the heirs after paying any taxes due. You should endeavor to get the tax accountant to prepare the final tax return as soon as you can now, so you can tell the court if any taxes are due and how much.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
