The owner of the company I once worked for once explained how evil the estate tax is.

He told me how after his father died, rather than selling the rest of the family business off and going traveling while living off his inheritance, the estate taxes forced him to take over the company, and grow it to the $60 million, 45 employee company it is today.

It was then I realized how far we had fallen as a country.

Funny how this is a topic now.
I got a letter in the mail about this on November 19th.
It reads as a result of the re- election of president Obama, there exists the real possibility that the estate tax exemption will drop from the current exemption of 5,000,000 to the old limit of 1,000,000. The estate tax rate will be over 50 percent before distribution to any heirs.
For this reason ,prudence dictates for those with sizable estates like your uncles that steps are taken to reduce their estates while making sure the estate retain enough funds to care for Him during his lifetime.

A). Nobody pays 55%. The majority of those that have to pay (about 1%) end up paying an effective rate of about 5%.

B). It's a direct transfer of wealth. Name me a form of direct transfer of wealth that isn't taxed. Just cause someone wins the genetic lottery instead of the actual one doesn't mean they should be exempt.

C). It prevents the type of uncreative wealth hoarding you find in Central American economies, which helps everyone in the economy.

i'm not a communist and this isn't fox news so you can't just avoid the discussion by calling people you disagree with "communist"

why does personal responsibility and hard work only matter if you're the child of poor or middle class families? why are some people simply entitled to the wealth obtained through the exploitation of the working class over generations, while food stamps and unemployment are literally hitler? what your parents made is no more "yours" than tax dollars, particularly by the time you've reached adulthood.



Yup, trying to change your family tree is awful. Simply awful.


P.S. no one in my family is rich, far from it. However, my grandparents made some extremely risky decisions to try to better our family.

How is inheriting $20 million different from someone gifting me $20 million? Why is one tax exempt but the other is not?

I wonder who here has family holdings and investments that will be taxed when inherited and who doesn't.

I worked my ass off on my parents farm growing up.
Probably harder work than most here have even dreamed of.

Can I not argue that I have already worked for that inheritance ?

Why is the fact many here that are arguing against this aren't planning on sailing the Bahama's with this, but hoping to better the life of their families and further secure their futures.

Wait, we are supposed to let the Government do that for us.

Too easy.
