Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
It depends when and how the asset was transferred. If the total asset is less than 5.43M there's no estate tax and inheritance (if the asset was transfer after the original owner death) is generally nontaxable. Retirement accounts funded with pretax money like pension or 401K are exception. If the person inherited such account, the distribution will be taxable.
Any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
