Office of Tax Simplification: Inheritance Tax Review

The first part of the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) inheritance tax review has been published and concludes that too many people have to fill in Inheritance Tax forms, and the process is complex and old fashioned.

More than 3,500 people shared their views about Inheritance Tax with the OTS, far more than in any previous review. Many of those who responded told the OTS that, at what is such a difficult time, they felt they were being asked to fill in complicated forms even where the relative who had died had only left a small amount.
