Capital Hill Watch Alert

Expressing the Sense of the House that Congress Should Complete Action on the Permanent Death Tax Repeal of 2002 (H.Res. 524)

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Expressing the Sense of the House that Congress Should Complete Action on the Permanent Death Tax Repeal of 2002 (H.Res. 524) on Thursday, September 19, 2002.  The measure expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the Congress should complete action on the Permanent Death Tax Repeal Act of 2002.  And prior to adjournment, Congress should present to the President the Permanent Death Tax Repeal Act of 2002 for signing into law.

A leading factor in the dissolution of family-operated businesses and a burden on families which save and invest has been the death tax.  On June 6, 2002, by a vote of 254 to 171, a bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives passed the Permanent Death Tax Repeal Act of 2002.  However, after 2010 families, farms, and small businesses will see the death tax re-imposed by Congress’ failure to enact their Act.  If the death tax is resurrected, it will prevent families from creating, expanding, and retaining farms and businesses.  Furthermore, American families, including farmers and small business owners, will be forced to waste vast amounts of their time and other resources on efforts to plan to comply with the tax when it is resurrected.  If the death tax repeal is made permanent, these resources could be used to promote job creation and economic growth by allowing farm and small business families to invest in productive, job-creating assets.
