Well recently my grandmother passed away unfortunately and has left some sort of money to me, as well as my father and aunt of course. Originally I didn't know there was an Inheritance tax, and personally I think it should be outlawed, it's double-taxing!! Anyway.. She lived overseas in Ireland and as far as I know was an Irish resident and what not. My father and I both live and reside in Australia. I'm an Australian resident, I'm not to sure about my father, I think he's still an Irish/UK resident. How would this 'inheritance tax' work? According to Irish law/tax or Australia law/tax..? Is there any way of avoiding or getting around it? I think they mentioned if you get it in cash or something you don't have to pay it? Any help would be much appreciated, thx guys.
