1. If no compensation is provided by the will, or the personal representative renounces all claims thereto, fees must be allowed upon the whole amount of the estate which has been accounted for, less liens and encumbrances, as follows:
(a) For the first $15,000, at the rate of 4 percent.
(b) For the next $85,000, at the rate of 3 percent.
