Estate records are those of Robert Warshaw of Trubin, Sillcocks, Edelman and Knapp, Hofmann's attorney and co-executor.

Other tax records are filed with Financial Records (Series 4). Massachusetts estate tax records include some documents regarding the Estate of Maria Hofmann. Additional wills are among the biographical information with Miscellaneous Records (Series 5). Further information concerning the 1966 art theft is with the Papers of Renate Schmitz Hofmann (Series 10).
