Who Can Make a Will?
To make a Minnesota Last Will, you must be considered an adult, the age of majority, and be of sound mind.
Minnesota Estate Taxes
Upon your death federal and Minnesota 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: Minnesota courts and your Last Will
