If the deceased was resident for tax purposes in France, then all his or her worldwide assets are within the scope of French inheritance tax. Accordingly, even though a beneficiary may not be resident in France, the whole of the estate is liable to French inheritance tax.

Also, as long as the decedent who transfers the asset by bequest is neither a U.S. citizen nor a foreign national domiciled in the United States, then no U.S. estate tax is imposed on the transfer. The United States does not impose inheritance taxes on the beneficiary's receipt of a bequest, therefore there is no U.S. tax resulting from the death transfer. Finally, the United States also does not impose an income tax on inheritances brought into the United States.
