Usually most parents are sure their house and property taxes are paid every year and if so, there is no reason to worry. Say the land had an assessed value of $250,000 and you sold it for $400,000. Then you would be charged Capital Gains Tax on the profit of $150,000. If you sold it for the exact amount $250,000 you wouldn't have to pay Capital Gains Tax. That's the only tax you would have to worry about it and you could easily pay it off by the profit you made. If your parents had back-taxes (highly doubtful) then you would have to find out from the IRS what they owed and pay those taxes. If the children want to keep the house on property, then they can get a loan to pay off the taxes, or, they can sell the house/property and hopefully make a profit after they pay off the back taxes.

Be advised that in most states land transfers through wills are often subjected to significant probate costs.

Deduct for College Tuition?

Many parents dread the tax season. They find out how much they owe in taxes and can become quite upset at the amount. Owing money in taxes is quite the drag. One way to eliminate high tax expenses is for parents to pay for the tuition of their children. If parents foot the bill for tuition expenses, then they are able to qualify for a $4,000 deduction on their taxes. This can be a great incentive for parents to pay for the education of their children. However, parents are unable to claim more than $4,000 in tax deductions for paying tuition expenses.
