Question about Estate House Sale?


Hi,
My mom passed away last August and we just recently sold her home. We have paid all claims etc, and now are dividing the profits as she noted in her will. I just do not know how I find out what taxes I will owe. All amounts are below 60K. I live in DC, and the house sale was in MA. Thank you!
