The beneficiary. When property is inherited, the basis of the property is "stepped up", and estate tax (if any) is paid by the estate's beneficiaries on the value difference between the deceased's basis and the transferee's basis. At sale, again, the beneficiary pays any imposed taxes on value over basis.

The person who inherits the property pays the inheritance tax, if any. For small amounts of money or modestly valued property (under 500,000), no inheritance tax is due.
