Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

Subject: Excluding certain real estate from the yearly income requirement
In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation that would exclude real estate on forest land from the requirement to have an annual gross income of at least $2,000 to qualify for inheritance tax exemption.

Under current law, after the transfer, certain real estate used for the purpose of agriculture is not subject to an inheritance tax, provided that the real estate continues to be devoted to the business of agriculture for a period of seven years after the transferor's death. The real estate is also required to obtain a gross income of at least two thousand dollars a year. My legislation would add forest lands as an exemption to the mandatory financial minimum.

I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this simple proposal. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
