The tax on the home is another important issue that needs quick resolution, according to the author. “If your loved one originally bought their home for significantly less than it’s currently worth, there are ‘stepped up’ taxes to consider,” the author wrote.
Heirs are also advised to be aware of various types of taxes in the state, such as the inheritance tax, which amounts to 10% of the gift’s value, and the estate tax, applicable when the inheritance’s value exceeds $5 million.
“Be sure to consult with a tax professional to understand the consequences of your decision about the property,” the author said.
The latter portion of the article tackles sales, particularly on how to determine the property’s value and how best to dispose of the property. Here, the article outlines the advantages and disadvantages of selling the property with one’s own’s efforts or with the help of a realtor.
