Inheritance From Grandfather

by June Richardson
(Fort Pierce, FL)

Grandfather put his house in a trust in 2001 before he died. He died in 2009 and I received $16,000. in 2010 after the sale of his house. The estate filed a return and paid a gift tax penalty before any monies were distributed. They sent a Schedule K for my return with an amount in deductions. Do I have to claim any of this money as income?

Inherited Investment Income

by Debbie
(New York City)

My husband recieved an inheritance when his mother passed away last spring. Most of the money was in the form of mutual accounts, which were transferred to his name and then liquidated.

We did not reinvest the money at the time, but put it into a savings account, thinking to use some to pay my son's college tuitiion over the next 3 years. Now he just recieved a 1099-B from one of the accounts indicating the gross proceeds.

None of the other accounts have done this, and have sent 1009s for interest only, which I can understand. My question is whether we have to pay income tax on this amount, is there some way to document that this was an inheritance, and should we have done something differently last year? And of course, is there anything we can do now to not have to pay taxes on this money?
