Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Inherited property is not subject to tax in Canada. The value of the inherited property is not reported on the tax return of the inheritor.

Capital gains tax may become due when and if the person who inherited the property sells it.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
