International and German inheritance and gift tax law

In inheritance and gift tax law, too, there are cross-border issues that have points of contact with international tax law. Points of contact in international inheritance and gift tax law can also be the nationality of the deceased, in addition to the place of residence of the persons involved, or the location of the assets in some foreign legal systems for the establishment of a tax liability. Here in Germany, there may be limited inheritance and gift tax liability for people who do not have a German place of residence.
