The information about Nebraska Inheritance tax is incorrect. The state does not have an inheritance tax. The counties have an in inheritance tax. It is also not at 18% but much lower.

PA needs a footnote. Spousal rate is -0-. Lineal descendents are 4.5%. Siblings are 12%. Parents of deceased children under 18 is -0-. All others are 15%.

MD has no inheritance tax on property going to a lineal descendant, spouse of a child or other lineal descendant, spouse, parent, grandparent, stepchild or stepparent or siblings.

And for most estates the tax rate is approximately 9.9% of the amount that the estate value exceeds $1,000,000.
