Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
Here there would be capital gains due on the difference between the amount it was worth in 1991 and what it was worth when it sold.
This is called the capital gain and taxes are due on it.
There is no federal or state inheritance tax it is just the gains.Any CPA who is telling you this should be reported tot he CPA board as he is putting you at risk for tax fraud and some serious penalties.
These are long term capital gains and the rates depend on what bracket you are in here income wise..
You will need to locate from the local tax assessor or the inventory from probate the value of the land in 1991 to calculate what you owe here.
File a complaint against the CPA here.
