Stillman Rules Land Not Inheritance, Given To Son The Iowa tax commission was informed last week that the district court at Emmelsburg had ruled against the state in a "contemplation of death" inheritance tax case. At issue was the tax on 300 acres of land transferred Sept. 4, 1953 by Paul S. Brown of Emmetsburg to his son, M. Lawal Brown. Paul Brown died Nov. 19, 1954, at nge 75. His net estate was $179,327. Stale Policy. The state contended t h e properly was subject to state inheritance tax because it wns transferred "in contemplation of death." The state takes that position vvhen a transfer takes place within two years of death. About $750 tax was involved. District Judge G. W. Stillman ruled that the transfer was not made in contemplation of death. He said Brown had suffered a slight stroke in 1950, from which it "appeared he recovered." "It appears that he (Brown) continued to make plans for future management of his properties, and in 1954 was talking about the purchase of a combination cornpicker and sheller to dry his own corn," the ruling said. Planned Car Deal "He spoke of buying a new car. No restrictions had been placed upon him following his 1950 illness, and it appears that he drove his car up to the day of his death. There was no evidence that the deed was executed in contemplation of death." The ruling said the record indicates Brown sought by transfer of ihe property to "avoid high surtaxes on his ' income." The Judge said Mr Brown apparently "had in mind the capability of his son to manage the property and his desire to have him independently established »t The ruling also pointed out that federal gift tax was paid on the transfer.
