The most significant difference between an estate tax and an inheritance tax is who is responsible for paying it. The terms are often used interchangeably when someone dies, but they're two different types of death taxes.
An estate tax is calculated based on the net value of all the property owned by a decedent as of the date of death. The estate's liabilities are subtracted from the overall value of the deceased's property to arrive at the net taxable estate. Any resulting tax bill is paid by the estate.
An inheritance tax is calculated based on the value of individual bequests received from a deceased person's estate. The beneficiaries are liable for paying this tax, although a will sometimes provides that the estate should pick up this tab as well.
Federal Estate Tax: Very few estates find themselves liable for it because the exemption at that level is $11.4 million as of 2019. Only estates valued at more than this are subject to the tax.

The 2019 ISU Land Value Survey shows that the majority of farmland sales, 72%, were to existing farmers. Investors represented 21% of land sales. Estate sales were still the main source of sales, followed by sales by retired farmers.
Farmland has historically been a fairly robust investment that generates relatively stable returns, especially when compared with other investments such as stocks. Since 1941, the nominal and inflation-adjusted Iowa farmland values have averaged a 6.4% and 2.6% increase per year, respectively. Farmland values have increased 72% of years, decreased 27% of years and remained unchanged for three years between 1910 and 2019. While 29% of farmland in Iowa is primarily owned for family or sentimental reasons, the strong robust returns for farmland have and will continue to attract interested farmers and investors to invest in the farmland market and land for sale.
