Inheritance Tax: Dina d’Malchuta Dina
In Halacha, Jews generally should violate Dina D’Malchuta Dina if it contradicts Halacha. This is why Orthodox Jews normally follow the Torah’s inheritance laws over secular law. But do inheritance taxes violate Halacha (since inheritance in Torah puts family first) so that Jews can’t comply with them, or are they compatible with Halacha so that Dina D’malchuta Dina applies? Beyond the moral question of whether they should exist.
