Welcome to JustAnswer!

My name is***** will assist you today.

Generally, Inheritances are not taxable.

___

For tax purposes the value of the war artifacts that you inherited "step up" in basis to the fair market value on the date of death of your father.

If you sold the items within a short period of time after your fathers passing that sale price is generally used as the fair market value for determining your tax liability.

When you complete your taxes this year you will be able to report that you paid in the $14,000 and depending on your overall tax situation you may receive a good portion of the payment back.
