AGO Opinions with Topic: AMENDMENT TO EXISTING STATUTE
AGLO 1981 No. 24 >  August 26, 1981
LEGISLATURE - AMENDMENT TO EXISTING STATUTE - TAXATION - INHERITANCE
ATTORNEYS' FEES UNDER INHERITANCE TAX LAW (1) While clarification may also have been an object of the passage of § 2, chapter 209, Laws of 1979, 1st Ex. Sess., amending RCW 83.04.013, its passage further evidences a legislative intent to make certain substantive changes in that statute. (2) Prior to the foregoing 1979 amendment to RCW 83.04.013, attorneys' fees incurred in an estate administration other than those attorneys' fees incidental to the preparation of federal and state inheritance tax returns were deductible for inheritance tax purposes.
