Delaware Lawmakers Introduce Bill To Abolish Estate Tax

Delaware flagRepublican lawmakers in the State of Delaware have recently introduced legislation that will get rid of the State’s estate tax.  The bill adheres to recommendations made by a state panel that was formed by Democratic Governor Jack Markell.  The Panel noted that the Delaware estate tax does not bring in much revenue and might actually be costing the State money by giving wealthy individuals an incentive to move elsewhere.
