When to file your inheritance tax return?

If you receive a letter of notification for the inheritance tax, then you must always file a tax return. If you do not receive a letter, but you have inherited more than the legal exemption that applies to you, then you are also obliged to file a tax return. Then you are also obliged to submit an inheritance tax return to the tax authorities. 

Common mistakes

Did you know that heirs regularly receive an unnecessarily high assessment? This happens, for example, if: 

Determine the most favourable interest rate for the claim on the surviving parent

If the first parent dies, the children will have a claim on the surviving parent. He or she will owe annual interest on this. Various factors determine which interest rate gives the best result from a tax perspective. That is why our tax specialists always calculate different scenarios. 

Set the interest rate agreement for the claim in good time

Be alert to the term within which the above-mentioned interest agreement comes into effect. The Tax Authorities only recognise the agreement if you record it within 8 months after the death of the first parent.

Consider a settlement agreement after the death of the first parent

Many heirs have difficulty proving the value of unpaid child support after the death of the surviving parent. If this information is missing, you will miss out on deductions. Therefore, have a settlement agreement drawn up after the death of the first parent. This can also be done through us.

Customer experiences

Previously I was a client of a large accounting firm that did not do a good job. Habermehl helped me well, personally and quickly. They took care of the administration and tax returns for my private limited companies. And the settlement of an estate. Their tax advice is very valuable.
