Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you this evening. They will owe no inheritance taxes. Florida has no estate or inheritance tax. And, on the Federal level, there is no inheritance tax either. So, bot***** *****ne, your sons will pay no inheritance tax. And, the basis of the property gets adjusted to its fair market value at death so that if they decide to sell it, there would be no gain on the sale and thus no tax either. Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as OK, Good or Excellent (hopefully Good or Excellent). I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
