- Many beneficiaries choose to alter the will. One of the reasons is that they don’t need it and they simply want to pass it on to their children. Another reason and most common one is that beneficiaries want to mitigate the inheritance tax.
When one inherits the property and money, a certain percentage of tax maybe payable on it when the title is transferred in the name of the heir. The issue is the percentage of the tax can be high and it depends on the amount that beneficiary has received.
