Repeal of the PA Inheritance Tax?

There is some talk from PA state legislators about repealing the PA inheritance tax.  See Neil Hendershot’s blog post here.

ACTEC (American College of Trust and Estate Counsel) maintains a chart showing the death taxes in all 50 states:  2009 State Death Tax Chart.  States with death taxes are in the minority, but not overwhelmingly so.  It seems a very remote possibility that the PA Legislature would do away with this source of tax revenue in the current economic climate.
