Advisory Vote No. 7 (estate tax)

The legislature extended, without a vote of the people, estate tax on certain property transfers and increased rates for estates over $4 million. This tax is expected to generate $478 million over 10 years. Voters are being asked if the tax should be repealed or maintained. But as an advisory vote, it’s basically little more than a public opinion and will have no legal bearing on the Legislature.
