Who Can Make a Will?
A New Hampshire Will can be created by an adult who is of sound mind at the time of creating the document.
New Hampshire Estate Taxes
Upon your death federal and New Hampshire 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: New Hampshire courts and your Last Will
Probate is a court-supervised process for gathering the deceased person's assets, paying taxes, claims and expenses and distributing assets to beneficiaries. A person's assets that are processed in probate include both items described in a New Hampshire Will and even assets that may not be explicitly listed in the Will.
