A Carlisle woman, who sued the state when she was told she would have to pay an inheritance tax after her same-sex partner passed away, has won her case.

Nancy Nixon filed the suit after her partner of 31 years died and the state told her she had to pay a $21,000 inheritance tax.  That’s something married couples do not have to pay.
