Do you have to accept what was left to you in a will or can you give it to someone else in the will?

You don't have to accept what was left to you, but if you refuse it, you can't redirect it (you don't control it). You can only redirect what you first accept, so if you're trying to avoid taxes, you can't have any say on where it goes.
