There is no Louisiana inheritance tax for people who die after June 30, 2004. Even Orleans Parish has done away with the tax on estates. So, you would not have any "inheritance tax." You would acquire the land and get the tax basis for the value of the land at date of inheritance. When you sell the land then you would pay tax on the profit over what your tax basis was at time of inheritance.
The federal inheritance tax is only on estates over $5 million.
