Inheritance Tax – What is your Current Allowance?

The current inheritance tax (IHT) allowance whereby no inheritance tax is charged is on the first £325,000 (per person) of someone’s estate – which is the value of the total assets they leave behind when they die (or 36% if leaving at least 10% to a charity). Couples can leave a home worth £650,000 without it attracting inheritance tax (singles £325,000). Above the threshold, the charge is 40%. This remains unchanged.
