The article discusses the status of federal estate taxes in the U.S. The author mentions that the future of these taxes are uncertain because Congress will likely extend the 2009 law due to intent of implementing a new permanent approach effective 2011. Moreover, she adds that some states have enacted a "picked up" death tax in conjunction with the federal credit, while others have decoupled from federal credit, resulting in higher state taxes.
