(Neb.)- Nebraska Bill Would Lower Inheritance Tax Rates

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 01/23/2013 05:22 PM
      LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska lawmaker has introduced a bill that would lower the state's inheritance tax rates.
 
     Sen. John Wightman of Lexington proposed legislation on Wednesday that would reduce the rates paid by both relatives and non-relatives.
 
     The bill would set a new, 9 percent tax rate on property valued above $15,000, if the person inheriting the property was a relative. The current tax is 13 percent. Property valued at less than $15,000 is not currently taxed.
 
     The measure would also lower the 18 percent tax imposed on non-relatives for property valued above $10,000. Wightman's bill would set the new rate at 13 percent.
 
     The inheritance tax is used by Nebraska's 93 counties, which have vigorously defended it.
