One of the largest assets of a typical deceased estate is often the principal place of residence. What is often inadvertently overlooked is that the sale of the residence may trigger a number of Capital Gains Tax issues for the estate. This book explores this minefield and spells out clearly how to handle this issue.

This book provides the answer to key questions such as the tax responsibilities of executors and when a tax return is required. It addresses a number of fundamental estate taxation issues such as capital gains tax, superannuation proceeds and the concepts of present entitlement.
