NC Probate Fees Go Up Again

Posted on: September 1st, 2009
Effective today, along with 1% increase the sales tax, the filing fee for probate cases has increased to $88 (from $61).  The .40/100 fee applied to estate assets (maximum of $6,000) does not increase this year – but watch for future increases as the state continues to struggle to increase revenues. 
If you use a living trust to avoid probate your heirs won’t get stuck with these fees.
