Maryland Estate Tax Exemption Increased

Maryland is one of only 13 states, plus Washington, DC, in the United States that imposes an estate tax, which means that any money an individual leaves to their family upon death above a certain amount, $1 million in Maryland, would be taxed by the state. Six states and Washington, DC were at or below the same exemption amount as Maryland. Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, and Washington, DC are also at $1 million, Rhode Island is at $921,655 and New Jersey is at $675,000.

The federal exemption amount is $5.34 million and the Maryland House and Senate have passed a law to gradually increase the exemption to match the federal amount by 2019.  Measures are also being made in Washington, DC, New York and Minnesota to raise their estate tax exemptions.
