How much is inheritance tax in california?
California no longer collects inheritance tax. This law was abolished in June of 1982. Any inheritance received is tax free in this state.
South Carolina does not have an inheritance tax, so the answer is 'zero'. But if the person leaving you an inheritance had this money in another State or nation and was subject to taxation there, that other state or nation may impose inheritance tax if it has it. US Federal taxes will only apply for estates worth well over $ 5 million.
Inheritance Tax is a tax which can arise where a beneficiary receives an inheritance as a result of someone dying. The beneficiary is responsible for paying the tax. An inheritance can be taken under a will or intestacy - or in some other way such as, for example, where an asset in the joint names of the deceased and another person is taken, on the death of the deceased, by that other person as survivor.
