Has anyone heard of or had experience with the cases that have been upheld in the 4th and 6th Circuit Courts of Appeals that rule that a spouse (non-working) inheriting property held as Joint Tenancy since before 1977 from the working spouse is granted 100% stepped-up basis?

I read about it in J. K. Lasser the past couple of years and now am in the position of having inherited such property from my husband.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
