Property subject to generation-skipping transfer tax, how to calculate the tax, allocation of generation-skipping transfer exemption.

(1) Introduction. The generation-skipping transfer tax was repealed effective May 17, 2005. If the taxable termination or distribution is the result of a death that occurred on or after May 17, 2005, there is no Washington generation-skipping transfer tax. This repeal does not affect generation-skipping transfer taxable terminations or distributions that result from a death that occurred on or before May 16, 2005. This rule applies only to taxable terminations or distributions that occur as the result of a death that occurred on or before May 16, 2005.
(2) This rule is intended to help taxpayers determine and pay the correct amount of generation-skipping transfer (GST) tax with their state return. It explains what property is subject to the tax, the calculation of the tax, and the allocation of the generation-skipping transfer exemption.
(3) Property subject to generation-skipping transfer tax. If real or tangible personal property subject to federal GST tax, as defined and used in section 2611 of the IRC, is located in this state or if the trust has its principal place of administration in this state at the time of the generation-skipping transfer, a tax in an amount equal to the federal credit provided by section 2604 of the IRC is imposed on every generation-skipping transfer.
(4) Calculation of the tax. The allowable Washington credit equals the federal GST tax on the transfer multiplied by 5% (.05). If state GST tax credit was paid to another state(s), the taxpayer must attach evidence of the credit paid to the Washington return. The Washington State Estate and Transfer Tax Return and the instructions for calculating the GST tax can be found on the department's web site at http://www.dor.wa.gov/ under the heading titled forms. The return and instructions can also be obtained by calling the estate tax section at 360-570-3265, option 2.
(5) Allocation of generation-skipping transfer exemption. The allocation(s) of the GST exemption for Washington purposes will be the same as the allocation(s) made for federal GST exemption purposes up to the amount allowed by section 2631 of the IRC.
