Inheritance Tax

Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors has an experienced Wills, Taxes and Probate legal department across the North East, with Inheritance Tax solicitors in Hartlepool, Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees and Barnard Castle.

Inheritance tax is hitting more and more families due to the current value of  houses and the governments failure to increase the threshold when tax becomes payable.

Tax is payable on the value of your assets on your death after deduction of any liabilities.  This includes your share of jointly owned assets such as your home.
