Who Can Make a Will?
A Virginia Last Will and Testament can be created by an adult of sound mind.
Virginia Estate Taxes
Upon your death federal and Virginia taxes can be collected. If your estate is large enough to meet the minimum filing standards ($1.5 million for deaths in 2005), the executor of your estate has 9 months to file United States Estate Tax Return (IRS Form 706) and pay any taxes that are due.
Probate: Virginia courts and your Last Will
Probate has come to be known as the legal process where a deceased person's estate is administered and distributed. Probate fees mainly consist of the cost of hiring a probate attorney. For a simple Virginia Will and estate probate fees are generally reasonable.
