But lacking a testament on the basis of a legal error, this does not apply tax. Then, the legal heirs pay taxes even if they pass the entire estate to the beneficiary actually. In a case decided now by the Finanzgericht Sachsen-Anhalt, the stepdaughter should be sole heir according to the will of the Testatrice.

She wrote no Testament but because she already believed erroneously her stepdaughter her legal heir. But these were other relatives and the stepdaughter was awarded due to lack of Testament.

So that these derogations from the Testament be recognised also by the IRS, are two requirements to be fulfilled. So must be determined clearly, that it is a deliberate arrangement of the deceased and the heirs must transfer accordingly assets intended to him the beneficiary. These hurdles are made, these mappings are treated the same tax at a testament.
