Dear Customer,

Inheritance is non taxable for the heir. Therefore, in most cases, you don't have to report tax on the item. However, if it is taxable item such as, his IRA or annuity taxable portion, the estate should have provided you with Form 1099 or Form K-1. Then, you will report tax according to the Form 1099 or Form K-1 you receive.

Therefore, it is suggested that you inquire with the trustee of his estate about what type of income it is and whether it is taxable for you and what type of documents you should have received. Another possibility is that the estate is paying the income tax; therefore, you don't have to.

Please feel free to follow up.

Regards,

Fiona
