View Full Version : Inheritance Tax

10-19-2006, 10:23 PM
I recently read an article which said if when one owner dies and they leave the property to the remaining spouse with "a life interest" then this tax is not paid.

I presume they mean that the tax is paid but only when the remaining spouse dies.

Is this true?

If the spouse who inherits is going to keep the property as part of his/her wealth for 10 years or more, there is an allowance of 95% of the full quote after the applicable reductions.
As an example, should the assets be valued 100.000 Euros, there is a reduction of 40.000 Euros to the spouse or descendants at Valencia area. So 100.000 Euros � 40.000 Euros = 60.000 Euros. Then 60.000 Euros � 95% = 3.000 Euros.
