First the federal limits on estates is $5,490,000 so no federal taxes on any amount less than this.
Likely no estate taxes here in CT.
Connecticut estates over $2 million are taxed at different rates. The rates range from 7.2 percent for estates over $2 million to the top of 12 percent for estates over $10.1 million. The first $2 million is tax free.
For example, the Connecticut estate tax for a $2 million estate is zero. A $3 million estate is taxed $72,000 (7.2 percent of $1 million). An estate of $5 million would pay a Connecticut estate tax of $252,000 (8.4 percent of $3 million). A $10 million estate would pay $912,000 (11.4 percent of $8 million). The Connecticut tax is due six months after death.
You would have no estate taxes here in NC either.
Overall if it is worth less than $2 million you owe no taxes here either federal or state taxes here in CT.
