Do you need to pay taxes on money given to you in a will? 03.20.2023
Towerpoint Wealth’s President, Joseph Eschleman, was the go-to financial expert on ABC10 News’ March 20 feature story.
A guest on ABC10’s Dollars and Sense segment, Joseph explained the four different taxes people need to be aware of when they inherit money through an estate, revocable trust, or will: estate taxes, gift taxes, inheritance taxes, and income taxes.
“Nine times out of 10, when you inherit money – be it from a friend, be it from a family member, doesn’t matter— the act of…inheriting it is not taxable to the beneficiary,” said Eschleman.
