Will the IRS take the home left to my brother in a will? 4 Answers as of May 11, 2011
I am writing on behalf of my mother-in-law. She is 85 and wants to leave her home to her son. who doesn't have much at all and the other brother (my hubby) is absolutely fine with that decision. A simple will should take care of this but now she tells me that my brother-in-law owes 30k to the IRS. Is it wise for her to still put the house in his name? Won't the IRS take the house?

The IRS can put a lien on the property and if the taxes are not otherwise taken care of, the IRS has the right to sell the property to pay the taxes.
