INHERITANCE TAX: No matter the amount of inherited property, or relationship to the deceased, Pennsylvania imposes an inheritance tax on all beneficiaries. Depending on your relationship your tax rate may vary. Spouses or lineal descendants (mother, father, siblings, adopted children, stepchildren) have their own tax rate.
NON-TRADITIONAL RELATIONSHIPS: With a large amount of non-traditional families like blended (stepparents & stepchildren), unmarried, homosexual or heterosexual, with or without children - these family dynamics require special arrangements.
