Property Tax Annotations
160.0010 Estate Property. Property in an estate should be enrolled, whether the assessment is a regular one or an escape, in the name of the estate or in the name of the beneficiary who will receive the particular property. If the property has been distributed, the assessment, regular or escape, should be in the name of the beneficiary only since the executor's/administrator's liability to pay taxes ceases once the estate is distributed. This approach is proper whether the beneficiary is the recipient of a partial interest in or obtains sole ownership of the property. C 12/19/1989.
