Inheritance tax returns
The executor or administrator of an estate is responsible for filing an inheritance tax return when the testator (maker) of a Will dies.
The person responsible for filing the tax return has a legal responsibility to make sure it is accurate, accompanied by the correct documents and filed on time. IHT must be paid by the end of the sixth month after death.
HMRC received £5.4 billion in IHT payments in the 2020-21 tax year.
