Annotations

  • Section 77-2005.01 expands the operation of section 77-2004 and this section, extending the same tax treatment to the relatives of a former spouse to whom the deceased person was married at the time of the spouse's death, but in no sense conflicts with either of the other two statutes. In re Estate of Morse, 241 Neb. 40, 486 N.W.2d 195 (1992).

  • The Legislature may properly distinguish inheritance tax laws in favor of blood relations, since such distinction is neither arbitrary nor unconstitutionally ambiguous. Ralston v. County of Dawson, 200 Neb. 678, 264 N.W.2d 868 (1978).

  • A more burdensome tax is imposed in the case of named remote relatives by blood or legal adoption. Todd v. County of Box Butte, 169 Neb. 311, 99 N.W.2d 245 (1959).
