As the beneficiary of an estate you do not pay taxes on the money you inherit. Many people commonly refer to an inheritance tax. That is a misnomer. There is no inheritance tax. The tax they refer to is really called an estate tax. The estate tax is imposed on the assets of the deceased. A non-US estate will not be taxed here.
