You can, but there's some paperwork involved. Wasn't there an administrator when she died? Please go to a lawyer for advice as opening an estate has some legal and paperwork requirements, plus you want to file an inheritance tax return but pay as little as legally possible. You likely have deductions against any inheritance tax liability such as a $3500 family exemption that you can receive for yourself because you lived with your grandmother, and deduct funeral bills and other last debts. Please hire a lawyer -- it's not a ton of money, but it's a little complicated to explain the process and you'll likely need help.
