Question about estate and income tax
I know that this is a forum for household finances but I'm hoping that someone may be able to answer a couple of questions for me. My uncle died and left his estate to be divided into parts. His estate is valued at 2.4 million. The attorney says that about one third of the money will have to go towards taxes. Can someone give me a rough "guesstimate" about how much the estate tax and income tax will be on the estate-just want to make sure that the lawyer is giving me correct info. The estate is in Connecticut. Thanks so much.
