If inheritance is disclaimed, the inheritance reverts back to the estate. Now one could inherit and then gift the portion to whomever it likes like a sister. So it may be appropriate to simply inherit and then gift the inheritance to whomever you desire.

Hi Ray here a new expert.Let me help you here with your follow up.With disclaimer here it goes back into the estate--the disclaimed share and the remaining heir here gets it all.
If the sister wants her kids to have it she should accept the share, pay any taxes here and then gift the remainder to the kids.When you disclaim it goes back into the estate pot and the remaining heir or heirs under the law get it all.
Thanks for your patience.I hope this answers your questions. Let me know if you have more.
The disclaiming heir has no input on who gets it, disclaimer merely waives their rights to it.Again if she wants her kids to have it she should accept it, pay taxes on it and then gift it to the kids.
