Estate and Gift Tax Committee

senior citizens on park benchThe mission of the Taxation Section's Estate and Gift Tax Committee is to provide a forum and other services for legal practitioners working in the area of federal and state estate and gift taxation. The committee meets six times a year to discuss estate and gift tax issues. In addition, ad hoc task forces meet periodically to address specific estate and gift tax problems. Such task forces frequently review and/or draft proposed legislation.

Representatives from the state Department of Revenue regularly attend committee meetings, giving the department and committee members the opportunity for open and frank discussion of the many complex issues now surrounding state estate taxes.

Committee meetings are held in several locations across the state, with participants linked by telephone conference. Currently meetings are regularly held in Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Bellingham, Wenatchee, and Spokane.

Any member of the Taxation Section is welcome to join the committee. Please contact the committee chair (listed below) if you wish to participate and for information on meeting locations.
