814.66 Annotation The "fee" under sub. (1) based on the value of the estate is in reality a tax and does not violate the constitution. Treiber v. Knoll, 135 Wis. 2d 58, 398 N.W.2d 756 (1987).
814.66 Annotation A fee is not collected under sub. (1) (a) upon the filing of the inventory for a testamentary trust. Trust Estate of Rice, 187 Wis. 2d 658, 523 N.W.2d 168 (Ct. App. 1994).
814.66 Annotation Sub. (1) (b) 2. calculates the guardianship filing fee based on the total value of an estate, including the value of unliquidated claims held by the estate at the time of the inventory. That the exact value of the claim is unknown does not exclude it from the value of the estate. The subsequent liquidation of the claim determines its value. The guardian is required to list the claim on the inventory with an unknown value and to supplement the inventory under s. 858.17 when the claim is liquidated. Angela S. v. Jefferson County, 2006 WI App 260, 297 Wis. 2d 42, 726 N.W.2d 300, 06-0027.
