House Votes To Permanently Repeal Marriage Tax

CBS (6/13, story 7, Rather) reports, "In Congress, the House voted for permanent repeal of the so-called marriage tax. Prospects for final passage in the Senate are iffy at best. Opponents of repeal say Social Security trust funds would be drained to make up for the lost marriage tax money."

Battle on Estate Tax: How Two Well-Organized Lobbies Sprang Into Action

BY Carl Hulse

As the Senate moved toward a risky vote on repealing the estate tax; William H. Gates Jr. sat a continent away on Wednesday, trying to work his will on the proceedings. One of a group of wealthy Americans who have campaigned to keep the inheritance tax, Mr. Gates, father of the Microsoft mogul, called pivotal senators. From Seattle, he laid out his case for withstanding the Republican-led election year effort to eliminate the tax or put Democrats on record as opposing repeal.

CSE Death Tax Campaign Highlights

Washington, DC – Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) kicked off a nationwide campaign to permanently repeal the “Death Tax.” Specifically, CSE targeted three undecided Democratic senators, Bill Nelson (FL), Ron Wyden (OR) and Patty Murray (Wa), none of whom were up for re-election. On voting day, Senators Nelson and Wyden both voted for full and permanent repeal. Throughout the campaign to eliminate this unfair and un-American tax, CSE activated its membership to lobby their senators with phone calls, emails, letters, and office visits, to kill the Death Tax once and for all.

Senate Leader, in Surprise Move, Opens Debate on Estate Tax Repeal

BY Carl Hulse

The majority leader Tom Daschle abruptly opened Senate debate today on a Republican plan to repeal the estate tax permanently, complicating lobbying efforts by those on both sides of the issue. With just a few hours notice, the Democratic leadership initiated debate on a proposal to rescind the tax as of 2010. Under tax cuts adopted last year, the value of assets exempted from the tax would be gradually increased until 2010, and then the tax would be eliminated for one year before it returned to 2001 levels.
