New Jersey Estate Tax-Soon to be a Thing of the Past

For years New Jersey has been an unfriendly place to die, given the fact that it imposes both a Transfer Inheritance Tax and an Estate Tax, or both, on some estates. New Jersey’s Estate Tax is currently imposed upon all estates exceeding $675,000. However, on October 14, 2016 Governor Christie signed a new law that increases the Estate Tax threshold from $675,000 to $2,000,000 starting January 1, 2017. One year later as of January 1, 2018, the New Jersey Estate Tax will be repealed completely. This should be a welcome relief and give New Jersey residents less of a reason to leave the Garden State to seek domiciles in other states.
