Even if you live in a state that's not facing a budget shortfall, there's a good chance you're paying more at the pump than you were a year agoIndiana, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia raised state gas taxes effective July 1, 2017In May, Montana adopted a bill that will phase in higher gas taxes over five years.But 2017 also illustrated the challenges facing lawmakers who propose tax hikesMaine lawmakers rolled back a 3% tax surcharge on income exceeding $200,000 that had been narrowly approved by voters in November 2016.The end of estate taxes? One state tax that is fading into the sunset is the estate tax, and Congress's plan to eliminate the federal estate tax could hasten its demiseNew Jersey's estate tax will disappear on January 1Thirteen other states and the District of Columbia continue to impose an estate tax, but a growing number are increasing the amount of assets that are exemptIn New York, for example, the exemption rose to $5.25 million from $4.19 million on April 1, 2017; beginning in 2019, it will match the federal exemption, which is currently $5.6 million.But states could find it much more difficult to impose an estate tax if the federal estate tax diesStates rely on the feds to enforce the tax, Drenkard saysThey may decide it's not worth hiring administrators to collect a tax that typically brings in less than 1% of overall revenue, he says.See Also: The 10 Most Tax-Friendly States in the U.S.Others aren't so sureState and local governments took in about $5 billion from estate, inheritance and gift taxes in 2015, according to the Tax Policy Center at the Urban InstituteThough that's nowhere near what states collect from other taxes, "it's real money," says Richard Auxier, research associate for the Tax Policy Center"If you get rid of it, you have to find a replacement."
