Who pays the estate tax? Posted on August 17, 2010
My mother died recently and left my brother and I assets through her will. My brother is the executor of the estate. Am I responsible for paying any sort of state or federal taxes? Does it make a difference that my brother and I live in different states? Does my brother have to pay the taxes because he is the executor? Does he have to pay the taxes before or after the assets in the will are distributed? I guess I am just wondering what kind of taxes I will owe on my share.
