I am not a tax attorney. But when my mother died, the estate paid any tax due (very little). You see, the stock belongs to the estate, and ownership does not pass to you until the probate court says it does. So until the estate makes a distribution of the stock to you, it (and its dividends) are not yours, but the estate's. Therefore, so would be the taxes due. But remember, I am not a tax attorney.
