BILL TO GET RID OF "DEATH TAX" PASSES HOUSE

4/27/2013

Legislation that has passed the state house of representatives would eliminate Pennsylvania’s “Death Tax” that would affect children 21 years or younger.

According to published reports, the vote passed 194-1 in the state house.  The bill calls for the elimination of the 4.5 percent tax placed on property transfers to or for the use of a child 21 or younger from a natural parent, adoptive parent or step-parent.  For those over 21, the tax would remain in place. 

There is competing legislation in the Senate, where it is currently waiting in the finance committee.
