I feel like one of those blood sucking relatives asking these questions but bear with me. So an aunt passed away suddenly & she didn't get to make her will. She wanted to leave €150k to my mother but it's now been left to my uncle in law to sort. My aunt told him her wishes & he has told my mum & said to discuss with me & sister . I'm guessing for tax implications. What's the best way to proceed to minimise tax? Is a brother in law treated as no relationship to my mum? Any advice appreciated? I think he has left it to my mum to decide if she wishes to split her share with us,her 2 kids. We are married too if this makes any difference. Apologies for the long ramble.
