Recently, my mother and father transfered their house to me, (only living son), with a reserved life estate. (New York)
At the time, they were receiving senior citizens discount on the real estate taxes, as well as, a veteran's discount because Dad was a WWII veteran. With Dad now recently passed and Mom still living are these discounts still allowed under the reserved life estate??
Also, who's income tax should the house be filed under, Mom's or mine??
If anyone can help I would appreciate it!
