The current Washington Estate Tax exemption is $2.193 million.

Below is a link to the Department of Revenue Estate Tax Tables.

The marginal tax rate begins at 10% and increases up to 20% (the highest in the nation). The first million of the taxable estate (amount above $2.193 million) is taxed at $100,000. The amounts are cumulative. So, the second million is taxed at $140,000 for a total tax of $240,000. The third million is taxed at $150,000 ($390,000 total); the 4th million at $160,000 ($550,000 total); 5th million at $180,000 ($910,000 total); 6th million at $190,000 ($1.1 million); 7th and 8th million at $195,000 each ($1.49 million total) and everything above $9 million is taxed at $200,000 per million.
