An inheritance is not taxed, so if you received money from a will there is no tax on that money
Are you absolutely sure? It will be a significant amount of money!
Yes, I am positive
An inheritance is not taxed. However, any income derived from that inheritance such as interest you may earn would be taxable
If the money is deposited into a bank, then it will be taxed??
No the money will not be taxed
If that money earns interest, the income from the interest would be taxed
