Relating to decedents' estates and the delivery of certain notices or other communications in connection with those estates or multiple-party accounts.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 2182 would standardize the delivery of notice and communications regarding estates. It would define a qualified delivery method in the Estates Code and replace mentions of communication with the new definition. It would also make minor changes to various estate laws, including creating a distinction between community property owned by the deceased or surviving spouse for liability of debts and changing the age eligibility for waiving service of citation in heirship proceedings. If enacted, a person appointed to be a personal representative for an estate would be permitted to make a declaration rather than take an oath.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 2182 as it does not touch directly upon any of our Liberty Principles.
