Cited five times by the Minnesota Court of Appeals, the new edition of Stein on Probate is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and practical reference on Minnesota probate law available. It expounds and explains in an orderly way on the rules and procedures governing the administration of a decedent's estate, including Minnesota's income tax, inheritance tax, and estate tax collection procedures. Beginning with a discussion of what to do when death occurs, the book describes each of the actions required and the options available in every phase of estate administration - from the original application through the final distribution.

This valuable resource contains virtually all of the primary authorities an attorney or personal representative would commonly use in administering a decedent's estate: the relevant statutes; the multi-party accounts act; the Minnesota inheritance tax law; the federal estate tax law; and the various Minnesota county court rules pertaining to probate proceedings.
