re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Antonio Moss
[quote]However, I could see some real issues with policing it. What wouldn't be considered "avoidance" of the tax? Under this system, do we care if people avoid it?

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Antonio Moss
Thomas Jefferson once proposed that Virginia should have an estate tax at around 95% and no income or sales tax. It would be an interesting idea. I'd like to see the numbers on the federal level of we got rid of every federal tax and simply taxed estates at something like 90%. ETA: obviously t...
