I am joint executor for an individual who died in March 2022. With other private pension income the individual was liable to basic rate income tax. The DWP have advised that the state pension due for the period from when it was last paid until the date of death will be received into the estate this month - May 2022. Is this payment taxed when received (2022/23) or should it be as income for tax year to which it relates (2021/22).
