    In New Mexico, unless all of the heirs and the PR agree to change the PR, you will have to hire an attorney and file a petition with the court for the change. Unless the PR has done something contrary to the intent of the Deceased's Will, or acted illegally oractedv contrary to the statutes governing PR's then you will not prevail.

    Contact the professional organizatio of CPA's in your state and file a complaint with them. That should ge his attention. If you owe him money you could always pay the bill and he would probably give you the papers back.

    You may not need to do anything unless he is receiving a refund. Someone needs to prepare the tax returns. Is the $8,000 income that he reports or is it a refund? If its a refund you can file form 1310 without doing a probate. If the return shows that he doesn't owe anything or if it says that he owes money then don't do anything.
