A Oregon Inheritance Tax Exemption Initiative, also known as No Taxes on Family Giving Amendment and Protect Family Giving From Taxes Act, did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot as an initiated state statute or initiated constitutional amendment. The measure, proposed both in statutory and constitutional formats, sought to prohibit the taxation of giving between family members. Taxes on giving to family members through inheritance is sometimes referred to as an inheritance tax.[1][2]


Marie Bowers, Robert Zielinski and Gerald Freeman were all chief petitioners for both versions of the proposed initiative.[3][4]
