Number of Decedents Subject to Estate Tax Continues to Drop

Citizens for Tax Justice has released State-by-State Estate Tax Figures: Number of Deaths Resulting in Estate Tax Liability Continues to Drop:

New data from the IRS show that only 0.6 percent of deaths in the U.S. in 2008 resulted in estate tax liability in 2009. (Estate taxes are usually filed during the year after the year in which a person dies.) The estate tax that would exist under President Obama’s tax plan would affect even fewer estates, which demonstrates why Congress should consider enacting a more robust estate tax than what President Obama proposes.
