Does the IRS know when you inherit money?

You may be pleasantly surprised to know that inheriting money from a friend or family member will not cost you a single dollar in federal income tax. Instead, the U.S. tax system may impose a tax on the decedent’s estate—which is the source of your inheritance money —if its value exceeds a certain amount.
