Home economics: Our property finance expert answers your questions
Q My wife left our residence in Dublin three years ago to go to her sister's house in Co Tyrone. The reason was that her sister, and only sibling, was in very poor health and needed full-time care. She has now died and left her estate to my wife, who has paid the inheritance tax due in NI/UK, and the question is whether she is now liable also for inheritance tax in the Republic? It's causing us some tension and worry.
