Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi.Cash and assets left to a surviving spouse are exempt from Inheritance Tax. You won't pay tax on the capital you receive. Any income the cash and assets produce in your hands will be taxable on you. If you inherited a source of income from your late wife such as a pension, the income you receive will be taxable.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
