Correct. The estate gets a deduction for the distributed/distributable amounts.


Thank you very much.

I've also seen different information on what percentage we (the heirs) will pay on the profit. One source said 15% if the taxpayer's income was $35k or less and 25% if it was higher. And other sources said other things.

Do you know? I've been trying to get the executor to find out, but he's in no hurry. He's one of the heirs.
