If the will is admitted to probate, then there is little that the lesser benefitted devisees can do. But, those that are being given a greater share of the estate, can give a portion to those receiving less under the will. As far as taxes go, that is an individual issue for each person and the estate. That shoudl nto be left to a generalized question on a free information site.

Good luck
