(New York Daily Press) The taxman is coming after James Gandolfini’s heirs.
The late “Sopranos” star’s will is “a disaster” that could see over $30 million of his estimated $70 million estate go to the government, a top estate lawyer told the Daily News.
“It’s a nightmare from a tax standpoint,” said William Zabel, who reviewed the document at The News’ request.
The 51-year-old’s “big mistake” was leaving 80% of his estate to his sisters and his 9-month-old daughter, Zabel said.
That made 80% of the estate subject to “death taxes” of about 55%, and the bill is due in nine months, Zabel said.
