Domicile is the critical issue for most estate tax issues. Domicile is your permanent home, your ultimate roots, and goes beyond residence. Domicile should be clearly set out in your in-laws wills (very important that these are in order). If they are truly settled in the US, with no intention ever to return to Ireland, then they may be domiciled in the United States; if they have any intention of returning to Ireland, even living in the US 25 years may not result in US domicile.

Consult an estate tax lawyer with these points and you should get the advice you need.
