Estate Tax Repeal's Impact on States
A recent report from the New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP) illustrates the havoc the 2001 tax cut's repeal of the estate tax is wreaking on the already strained New Jersey budget. The report offers a state-level solution to the problem created by the federal estate tax repeal process, which actually ends the states' ability to "pickup" a portion of the federal tax for themselves earlier than the federal government's estate tax ends. The NJPP website also provides links to the 3 newspapers that have thus far endorsed its proposal, as well as an op-ed piece that ran in the New York Times New Jersey edition.
