Finance (1909-10) Act, 1910

Collection and recovery of duty in case of death.

57 & 58 Vict. c. 30.

5. The provisions as to the assessment, collection, and recovery of estate duty under the Finance Act, 1894, shall apply as if increment value duty to be collected on the occasion of the death of any person were estate duty; but, where any interest in land in respect of which increment value duty is payable is property passing to the personal representative as such, the duty shall be payable out of that interest in land in exoneration of the rest of the deceased's estate, and shall be collected upon an account to be delivered by the personal representative, setting forth the particulars of the increment value in respect of the property:

Provided that in respect of all property of the deceased other than that assessed to increment value duty, the Crown shall, as a creditor in respect of such increment value duty, rank pari passu with the other creditors of the deceased.
