My DW's Grandmother passed away earlier this year.

The estate, what little there was was split evenly between the 3 sisters. My dMIL received 1/3 of the total amount and at her discretion, chose to have it split 3 ways so that she kept 1/3, 1/3 came to my wife and 1/3 to my dSIL.

Will I be responsible for any taxes on this amount? We're talking less than $10,000 that was given to DW and I.

Thanks in advance... reading the inheritance stuff at the IRS page is a bit confusing.
