The whole idea of taxes has a long history. There are various types of taxes such as personal income tax, property tax, sales tax, and many other types that have been collected over the years and have specific purposes mainly focused on the accumulation of funds whose collection will be further in activities related to the improvement of society to invest in.
Another reason why taxes are imposed on people and organizations is that the government strives to ensure a smooth and relatively even distribution of wealth, as is the case in society. One of them is inheritance tax.
Regarding the prospect of inheritance tax, a common thing about this type of tax that appears in general scenarios has to do with its title, which is sometimes replaced by the title "voluntary tax" in place of inheritance tax. This title theme highlights the many ways in which inheritance taxes, which must be paid to tax authorities, can be reduced. However, not many people make this effort and only go through the tax business without any real effort to reduce it. This is the main reason why inheritance tax is called voluntary tax.
On average in the UK about £ 2 million per year (which is actually £ 2 billion) is collected as excess domestic income (which inheritance tax members could avoid). In the general scenario, inheritance tax is levied by the authorities on the relatives of the beneficiaries who receive their inheritance. However, this list of relatives does not include recipient spouses.
