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.
