Is there anyway around paying inheritance tax on a joint account I had with an old boyfriend? He only put about $100 in but I put much more
It was a joint savings account opened through my work credit union. We broke up a few months after opening the account but I never thought to take him off and then I forgot his name was still on it until recently. I went to take his name off the account but to complicate matters he died in 2004 (we broke up in 1999). The folks at the credit union informed me that I have to pay inheritance tax on my own money!! Is there anyway around this?
