The Treasurer’s Office will accept tentative inheritance tax payments under Statute 77-2018.07. Any person subject to the tax imposed by sections 77-2001 to 77-2037 may, prior to the final determination of the inheritance tax, make a tentative payment of the tax in order to avoid the accrual of interest or penalty on such tax. Any person who desires to pay such tentative inheritance tax shall make a written application to the county court for an order allowing the payment of a sum specified in such application, prior to the final determination of the inheritance tax due. The tentative tax payment allowed in this section shall apply to both probate and non-probate estates. The tentative tax payment shall not be a final order and may be amended, altered, or modified by subsequent order of the court.

The Treasurer’s Office will accept the Court Order, or other written application to the County Court, or the Inheritance Tax Worksheet that is completed with name of deceased, date of death, book and page number, the tentative amount of inheritance tax due and the required consent of the County Attorney’s Office. If County Attorney will not consent, the Treasurer’s Office will not accept an order which allows the payment of a tentative tax in an amount specified.

If the requested information above is not provided, the Treasurer’s Office cannot take a tentative inheritance tax payment.

ALL INHERITANCE TAX PAYMENTS ARE PROCESSED AT THE 1819 FARNAM STREET LOCATION.
