What is the name of your state? Washington
Question, if you please.....My Mother who lives in the State of Washinton has received a 1099 from the closing attorney that sold a home in Pennsylvania that was a part of her inheritance from her parents estate in Pennsylvania; both having passed away respectively in 1982 and 1999. The estate (the 5 children) have been handling the affairs and properties since the parents passing and, decided to sell 1 of the properties----each receiving their share at closing, and now each receiving a 1099 for their share of the proceeds. My question on her behalf is this: ....as this is part of an inheritance, how should this 1099 be treated on her 2006 tax return ? I might add she is 79 and receives social security though she does subsitute teach a few days a month for her enjoyment. The 1099 was, I believe for about $10,000.00.
Thank you kindly.
