When must I pay the tax?
The inheritance tax is due 18 months from the date of death. If the payment is made within 9 months from the decedent's death, the county treasurer shall grant a 5% discount on the tax due. After 12 months, interest is charged at 10% per annum on any delinquent portion of tax due from the date of death to the date of payment. The court may reduce the rate of interest from 10% to 6% if the estate shows unavoidable delay. The court, however, may not waive the entire interest.
