Oregon Estate Planning Laws: 2007-08 Updates

By

The latest section newsletter from the Estate Planning and Administration section of the Oregon State Bar (OSB) includes the following articles. (Only past issues are online, but you can contact your nearest law school or county law library (see sidebar for links) and ask to see a copy.)

1) “Changes to the Oregon Uniform Trust Code,” by Christopher Cline.

2) “2008 Special Legislative Sesion Establishes Farming, Forestry, and Fishing Inheritance Tax Credit,” (HB 3201, history, and HB 3618, property definitions clarified), by Jeffrey Cheyne.

3) “Washington Imposes Estate Tax on Property of Nonresidents,” Lisa Bertalan.

4) “Update on the Oregon Advance Directive,” by Ruth Simonis.

(These useful newsletters from OSB Sections are not well-indexed so I try to highlight some of their articles when they land on my desk/top.)
