My step daughter just passed away from cancer.she had a small life insurance policy, and her will left everything to her mom. Are there any taxes owed

Hello, and thanks for contacting Just Answer. My condolences on the loss of your stepdaughter. A small life insurance policy which is payable to her mother would not be taxed for either Federal Estate Tax or Ohio inheritance tax. Actually, the Ohio estate tax was repealed as of Jan 1, 2013, and always excluded life insurance. So there are no taxes owed on the insurance.
