Jay Y. Lee, Vice Chairman at Samsung Electronics | 2nd from left

Lee Jae-yong, the heir of Samsung Group is one of South Korea’s richest man with more than $11 billion fortune. 

In April 2021, the heirs and family of Samsung including current Vice-Chairman of Samsung Electronics Lee Jae-Yong will have to  pay inheritance tax of around $10.7 billion (12 trillion won), for inheriting around $22 billion estate from the late Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee who died in October 2020.

The Lee family plans to pay the full amount of the inheritance tax over a period of 5 years, including reducing the inheritance tax through public donations of arts and medical funding.    The $10.7 billion inheritance tax is likely to be paid from stock dividends and possibility of bank loans. 

The estate’s collection of antiques and paintings will be donated to the National Museum of Korea and other cultural organisations.  The collection includes national cultural assets and paintings by Korean painters such as Park Soo-keun and Lee Jung-seop and 23,000 art pieces including works by artists Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Claude Monet, Joan Miro and Salvador Dali. 

For medical funding, the Lee family will donate around $900 million to fund infectious disease research and treatment for children with cancer and rare illnesses.
