Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes.
This is also true for the Florida probate process.
The purpose of the Florida probate process is to gather the assets and debts of the deceased, pay the debts off, and distribute the remaining assets to the heirs. The Florida personal representative is responsible for ensuring this process is properly completed with the assistance of an attorney.
During the Florida probate process, the Florida personal representative will also need to ensure that all Estate taxes as well as the individual taxes of the deceased have been filed and paid before the probate matter can be closed and the assets can be distributed to the heirs.
If you have been named as the personal representative of an estate in Florida, or where the deceased passed away owning assets in Florida, or if you have recently suffered the loss of a loved one and would like to be appointed as the Personal Representative for the estate, then contact Boyer Law Firm, P.L. today.
