Do beneficiaries pay an income tax on their inheritance?

No. However, they will be responsible to pay their share of any tax on any post mortem income earned on their inheritance, as well as on any income accrued to, but not realized by the deceased during his or her lifetime, such as income on savings bonds and IRAs.
