Inheritance Tax

For Individuals dying before January 1, 2013:

Inheritance Tax is calculated based on all assets owned by a person at the time of their death. The current, state-prescribed forms must be submitted in the county where the decedent lived at the time of death. Completed IH-14 forms are approved by and filed with the Assessor's office. The Inheritance Tax return, Form H-6, is due within 9 months from the date of death and should be filed with both the County Clerk's office and the Assessor's office.

The Assessor's office audits the Inheritance Tax returns and therefore cannot assist in the preparation of any Inheritance Tax documents. Please consult an attorney or tax professional for assistance in completing the documents.
