Possible Repeal of the Death Tax

Estate Tax, or what has become more commonly known as the "Death Tax," is a tax on the transfer of property at a person's death.  This tax is known to favor large businesses and wound smaller, family-owned enterprises.  

At a rate of 40%, the Death Tax is unequivocally despised by the majority of American voters, who call it what it is: unfair.  The tax falls on the children and the grandchildren of the deceased, essentially causing funds to be double-taxed. This fiscal inefficiency stifles economic growth and leaves some of society's most successful contributors feeling cheated and disillusioned.  

"[The Death Tax] is the number one reason why small businesses don’t pass their business down to their kids—number one reason why our family farms are disappearing," stated Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX), who is Vice-Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee.  

Many Americans who are concerned with the future of their families are asking: is there a way to repeal this Death Tax?

Come September, Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is the new conservative House majority leader, will face his first days in his new role.  Despite a good deal of liberal opposition, McCarthy could unite moderate and conservative voters behind the notion of repealing this Death Tax.  There may be hope for change around the corner.
