Die Death Tax, Die

Investors do not like uncertainty. If, as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The wheels and springs of man are all set to the hypothesis of the permanence of nature,” it is the belief in the permanence of law that sets all commercial activity in motion. Deprive investors, merchants, and consumers of legal certainty and they will retrench. Consumption will fall, discretionary risk capital will dodge risks, and all commercial exchange will slow as parties on both sides of the trade look for ways to hedge their bets.

Minority Entrepeneurs Push Tax Cut

Copley News Service, 04/11/2001 In a week when President George W. Bush's tax cut plan suffered major setbacks in the Senate, 49 leading African-American businessmen and businesswomen, including Bob Johnson of BET, Earl Graves of Black Enterprise magazine and Alice Houston of Automotive Carrier Services, took out an ad in newspapers across America to urge Congress to repeal the "death tax." Ironically, this ad makes the case better than the president's own party has made it.

A Tax We Can All Live Without

Recently, a group of extremely wealthy Americans voiced opposition to bipartisan efforts in Washington, D.C. to abolish the death tax. However, these billionaire activists do not address the strong disincentive created by the tax, or the burden it imposes on small farms and businesses.

Tell Your Representative to Repeal the Death Tax

The ink has yet to dry on Bill Clinton’s veto of Congress’s bill to eliminate the marriage penalty and now he has vetoed H.R. 8, “The Death Tax Elimination Act,” which would have gradually eliminated the Death Tax over the next 10 years. H.R. 8 is scheduled on the House floor for an override vote on September 7th. Against the tide of bi-partisan support in Congress to eliminate the Death Tax, the administration keeps repeating the stale class-warfare rhetoric that these tax cuts will “benefit the rich.”

Death Tax Hurts Economy, Should Be Ended

Editor: No section of the tax code is more unfair and more dangerous to our entrepreneurial economy than the death tax. With rates as high as 55 percent, the death tax punishes people who build a successful business or farm and try to leave that legacy to their kids. Moreover, the death tax's modest contributions to the federal treasury are dwarfed by its staggering impact on the U.S. economy. The reasons to terminate the death tax are simple: 1. The death tax is unfair.

Chorus of Taxpayer Irritation

Copley News Service, 06/08/2000 Oprah Winfrey doesn't mince any words when it comes to telling us what she thinks about the federal estate tax: "I think it's irritating that once I die, 55 percent of my money goes to the U.S. government," she said. "You know why that's irritating? Because you would have already paid nearly 50 percent."

No section of the tax code is more unfair and more dangerous to our entrepreneurial economy than the death tax.

Moreover, the death tax’s modest contributions to the federal Treasury are dwarfed by its staggering impact on the U.S. economy. Repealing the death tax is the right thing to do for American family farms, businesses, and the new economy
