A client of mine lost her husband earlier this year. He left

Resolved Question:

A client of mine lost her husband earlier this year. He left 1/2 of the estate to her and 1/2 of the estate to 5 nieces. The amount of the estate is about $100,000. The wife is the executor of the estate, does an estate tax form need to be filed? Thanks

Since the gross estate is less than $2,000,000 a federal estate tax return does not need to be filed. If he was a resident of KY then a KY Inheritance Tax Return (Form 92A200 or 92A205) would have to be filed since the nieces are not beneficiaries that are exempt from inheritance taxes.
