    You can read a full analysis here.
    Bud, did you read what you quoted? It clearly agreed with me, not with you.

    Probate fees in Washington are currently provided under RCW 11.48.210 as follows:
    •The amount set by the Decedent in his/her Will, or in the absence of such a specified amount
    •The amount determined by the Court to be “reasonable and just.”
    You said:


    It also depends on if the will stipulates that the executor can be paid a fee or not.

    You like to split hairs. If the will stipulates a fee, that is the fee. If it doesn't, the court will decide if the fee is reasonable and just. The will can also say that no fee is paid. What's your point.

    I am not splitting hairs Bud. The statute also says:

    •Active Alternative: To renounce that amount and allow the Court to determine “reasonable and just” compensation, with any such renunciation required to be made in a writing filed with the Court prior to his/her appointment. For the form to accomplish this renunciation and election, see: If the Decedent Has Set an Amount for Compensation in his/her Will.
    Which would indicate that if the will said no fee, that the executor could ask the judge to override the will and to determine "reasonable and just" compensation.

    Look, you made a mistake in your wording that let your sentence to mean some that doesn't agree with the statute. Just admit that and move on.
