Pwede bang i-waive ang property na minana? Taxable ba ito?

Estate Settlement 3 min read , November 10, 2022

What if may minana ka sa magulang mo na lupa or ari-arian?

Pwede mob a itong i-waive na lang sa mga kapatid ko or sa nanay ko? If pwede kong i-waive, may tax ba na dapat bayaran?

Once in a while nakikita naming ito sa aming practice. Yung mga tagapagmana, hindi nila tinatanggap yung mana nila. Gusto nilang ibigay na lang sa kapatid nila yung share nila or sa nanay or tatay. Pwede ba to?

Ganyan ang tanong ng reader natin today, na si Celine A., who says:

"Attorney, my father just died. He left to us our house and lot in Cainta. There are 3 of us his children and my mom is still alive. We saw from your videos that we, as children will inherit the house and lot along with our mom. The 3 of us siblings discussed it and we don’t want to have any share in the house and lot because we feel it belongs to our mother. Can we just give our share to our mom? Is there anything we need to consider? Will it be expensive?"

So today paguusapan ang:

  1. Pwede ba natin i-waive yung mana natin?
  2. If pwede i-waive, may kelangan bang bayaran na tax?
