Estate Tax Liability

The amount an estate owes to the government before it can be distributed to heirs. The estate tax liability is calculated as a certain percentage of the value of an estate after all the debts of the deceased are repaid and certain deductions are taken. However, there is no estate tax liability calculated on the first $1 million (sometimes more) of an estate's value.
