Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
What was your mother's nationality and where did she live?
Her estate should have been declared to HMRC for Inheritance tax (IHT) assessment when probate was granted. Beneficiaries are not personally responsible for IHT, it is a matter for her executors or administrators before distribution.
Of course, for a fee.
