Individuals receiving Turkish property through inheritance are subject to taxes in Turkey. Inheritance tax is levied on the inheritance of each beneficiary at progressive rates. The rates vary depending on the taxable inheritance and on the relationship between the donor and recipient.

If the estate of the deceased includes immovable property in Turkey, then Turkish Law is applied.

I did not see any specific question but even a US citizen or resident alien is not immune from taxation on this inheritance in Turkey.
