Abstract

Typically, assets in a qualified family-owned business interest (QFOBI) pass by inheritance to qualified heirs. The statute requires that the aggregate value of the decedent’s qualified family-owned business interests exceed 50 percent of the adjusted gross estate (gross estate less allowable deductions), and that amount or more must be “acquired by any qualified heir from, or passed to any qualified heir from, the decedent….” The question is whether QFOBI assets can pass to qualified heirs by purchase with eligibility retained for the family-owned business deduction and, if so, what the income tax consequences of the sale are to a qualified heir or heirs.
