Money to be inherited is an account in a French bank, in Paris. The bank says it can not release the money to the inheritor as there is an outstanding amount of tax that has not been paid, due to the deceased passing away before he could pay it. Can the bank first take off the amount due for tax and pay it to the tax office, and then release the balance to the person inheriting? The person inheriting does not have the money available to pay the tax.
I have already sent money to her to pay for various documents that she needed, which amounted to about 10000Euro, and am unable to send her the money for the tax that amounts to 3256Euro. The amount she tells me amounts to(###) ###-####uro, and the argument is that with the amount that she will inherit, she should have the money to first pay the tax, before the bank releases the money to her. I asked her to speak to her lawyer and ask if this would not fall under a law concerning deceased estates, where here in SA the master of the court would receive a statement of account and see that the outstanding tax has been deducted with any other relevant costs and then allow the balance to be released.
