This afternoon, the House will be voting on a bill to permanently create a death tax with a 45 percent rate and a $3.5 million exemption. This bill has many challenges, and will not be supported by Americans for Tax Reform.
The House Republicans will be offering an alternative to kill the death tax permanently. ATR is proud to support and endorse this effort, and will be key-voting in favor of full and permanent death tax repeal in our annual “Hero of the Taxpayer” awards.
Should the House GOP not prevail in their push for full and permanent death tax repeal, they may next attempt to extend the scheduled 2010 temporary repeal of the death tax for a longer period. ATR would be proud to support a temporary extension of 2010’s “no death tax” rules should permanent repeal be off the table. We would urge all members to support it, and will be key-voting in favor of such a vote in our annual “Hero of the Taxpayer” awards.
