5 Questions Answered
- Q. In cases of multiple owners of a property, does majority rule on questions of selling, renting, etc?
- A: Each owner in a joint ownership situation would have a say. If there is a disagreement, then ultimately you need to seek a partition action to force a sale.
- Q. Probate, Trusts and an Un-trust worthy executor
- A: It's sometimes difficult to know how to handle delicate estate situations. As a beneficiary of a trust, you have the right to review the trust itself and receive periodic accountings. I would start there and see what information you get. Hopefully, you will not need to involve the courts in a breach of fiduciary duty/conversion action. Let us know if you need further assistance.
- Q. Hello, I will be inheriting $90,000. and live in Montgomery County Maryland will I be paying any MD or Federal taxes?
- A: If the sum total of the Estate is only $90,000, then you are well under state and federal thresholds for estate tax. There are several other fees you may have to handle - probate fees, capital gains, income tax, all depending on the nature of the assets in the estate. Please consult a qualified CPA/attorney to assess your potential liability. ** Please note this is not to be considered legal or tax advice, and creates no attorney-client relationship. **
