Testimony to the House Ways & Means Committee on House Bill 3: Estate Tax Repeal
February 9, 2011
House Bill 3 in the Ohio House of Representatives would repeal the state’s estate tax. This measure would reduce revenue to Ohio’s municipalities, which receive 80 percent of the estate tax. It would also further weight Ohio’s state and local tax system in favor of the affluent. Zach Schiller, research director of Policy Matters Ohio, delivered this testimony opposing repeal at the House Ways & Means Committee on February 9, 2011.
