Unclaimed funds from a bank belonging to a decedent whose estate was settled four years ago have been issued to one of the remaindermen. The estate had three remaindermen each entitled to equal shares of the remainder of the estate. The unclaimed funds were not included in the gross estate. What are the tax implications and how should the recipient of the funds proceed?

Hello JA Customer,

 

If the funds were not included as part of the original gross estate, then they are not subject to any estate taxes, assuming that estate taxes even applied.

 

The recipient of these funds is not required to report the receipt of this money. If taxes would have been due, the funds would have been included as part of the estate and taxed at that time if estate taxes applied.

 

If this was helpful please press the Accept button.

 

Thank you JA Customer

The estate was a taxable estate. The funds were received in 2009. It was a check issued by a state authority. The proceeds exceeded $10,000.
