My Dad passed away in 2001 & my Mom in 2004. About a year ago my Dad was a class action member in a pension plan lawsuit which was court approved. I have the legal documentation (Short Certificate & Letters of Administration naming me as administrator of the estate. I have already gotten a new EIN for my Dad. The following are my questions: When I received the settlement chk-they had already taken out the State & Fed Taxes. I still have to pay the Inheritance Tax. Do I pay the Inheritance Tax on the amount of the check or before the State & Fed Taxes were taken. Also, is there a special form I have to fill out or the REV-1500 (Pennsylvania). I have no money for a lawyer. Is this something I can do myself? Is there someone who can help me? Thank you for your time & help. Evelyn S.
