pick-up tax

Definition

An estate tax paid to states by people who receive an inheritance subject to federal taxation. A pick-up tax is only paid when an estate exceeds the federal exemption amount because it is based upon the federal liability. This is used by some states which do not have detailed estate tax structures written into their tax codes.
