"There are some annoying things that related executors must perform....the death certificate and any other legal form"

Usually the funeral parlor will furnish the death certificate....they need it to do a cremation or burial.

You have to get things appraised like real estate and such. Maybe get the household furnishings appraised so you can divide it between heirs equitably. If you owe estate taxes that is mandatory.

The executor/trix also has to transfer assets to the heirs at the appropriate time. Or sell them and distribute cash.

And you have to file income tax forms .........and pay any estate taxes due.
