I do not understand why they have periodically asked me to sign in agreement to them deducting this amount of money from my equal share of the estate of which I never have agreed and why after all this time refunded it without telling me they have retained it and to have now divided it between my siblings and not repaid me in full?
Why should you get all this money not a share?
Whose money was it? I appreciate that the account was joint but I need to know whose money was in the joint acct.
I am on and offline all day today
The joint accounts were between myself and my Father. The tax dept told me that the inheritance tax would come from the estate, the executor deducted the money from my equal share as a beneficary to pay as they claim, half the inheritance tax due to these joint accounts held with my Father. My siblings had thier equal share and mine was less due to the deduction made. Over the years they have asked me to agree with them deducting this money from my equal share of the estate to which I never have. They did not tell me that they have retained this money deducted from me and only now have sent me a share of it....not the full amount that was taken, I did not agree to this and even my Fathers will states all inheritance to be deducted before the residue paid to his children
