My 3 brothers & I inherited our mother's investment account w/Wachovia. If we leave the money in the account (we each received less than $30,000) will there be taxes due?
Estate Planning Attorney
I am not an OK attorney so I could be wrong but based on a quick search OK doesn't currently have a state inheritance tax or state estate tax. In any event, if the state did levy such a tax and if the people you say are entitled to the account are so entitled, and the assets are taxable (IF!!!) then the funds would still be taxed even before they are technically moved because the rights in the account vested upon death. Again that's a lot of "ifs"
