how does the Massachusetts Inheritance tax work? That is, if someone inherits or receives say, 100,000 is there an inheritance tax?
Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.


Good morning. Massachusetts has no inheritance tax. Massachusetts does have an estate tax, but the estate is exempt from this tax unless the estate is over $1,000,000. If the entire estate is less than $1,000,000, there is no Federal or Massachusetts estate or inheritance tax due.
