Inheritance Tax

The County Assessor's job is to assist with the paperwork required when filing the Consent to Transfer and to audit the Inheritance Tax Return. The county assessor's office cannot fill the paperwork out for you, but we can give guidance as to the requirements and procedures to follow. Many financial institutions will assist you in filling out the Consent to Transfer. Normally your attorney will also assist you with the Consent to Transfer and normally will prepare the Inheritance Tax Return that is required.
