Payment to Executors

 People often ask how executors get paid in Nevada. In cases where the will does not specify compensation amounts, the State of Nevada determines reasonable compensation based on the net value of the estate to be:

4.0% on the first $15,000

3.0% on the next $85,000

2.0% on any amounts above $85,000

Funds which pass directly to named beneficiaries such as retirement accounts, life insurance policies or death benefits are not included in these calculations.
