What is my inheritance tax liability?


If you inherit a property valued at £40000 and which has an outstanding mortgage of £320,000. Are you still liable for IHT on value over £263000? Even though there is only capital of £60K in it.


Arthur Says

Inheritance tax is due on the net value of the estate. So if the only two items attributable to the estate are a property valued at £400,000 (not £40,000) and an outstanding mortgage of £320,000, then the net value of the estate is £80,000. Since this is below £263,000 (or whatever the nil rate band at the time was), there is no IHT.
