What to do regarding the sale of an inherited house?

Question Details: Before my mom died, she did a quit clam deed to my sister only so that she could get the deed and sell the house to split between the 3 of us. The house sold a month ago. If this is an inheritance, shouldn't she split the money 3 ways and we each pay a 3rd of taxes base on fair market value of the house at time of death? Is the fair market value what the county says it's worth or is it base on sales of other house of same size in the area?
