The tax office is setting up a dedicated unit to help people navigate the complex area of deceased estates.

Responding to a review into death and taxes, the Australian Taxation Office acknowledged it could be a difficult time for relatives, executors and appointed agents, who may be grieving the loss of a loved one while finalising their estate.

The agency has agreed to a number of review recommendations, including allocating specialists within the ATO equipped to handle deceased estate issues.
