Executor Compensation and Fees (OK)

Show Table of Contents

If the will does not specify how executor compensation should be calculated, OK estates must follow state compensation rules (see OK calculator below).

In Oklahoma, if the will does not specify the executor fee (or you have renounced your claim to that fee), default executor fees are calculated as a percentage of the net value of the estate:

  • 5.0% on the first $1K
  • 4.0% on the next $5K
  • 2.5% on anything more

So, for example, an Ohio estate worth $5K would yield $200 in executor fees, and one worth $600K would generate $15,100 in executor fees.

The court can also allow additional compensation for "extraordinary" services, at most doubling the total compensation. Common interpretations of "extraordinary" include overseeing the sale or lease of real estate, running a business, conducting litigation, preparing tax returns yourself, handling tax audits, and so on.

See Oklahoma Statutes Title 58 § 527.
