[quote]No. If it were me I'd take my income and take everything I don't spend and take it offshore to avoid the future tax.[/quote] Why not invest it? It's not like you're anticipating dying tomorrow. You can move it offshore later right?...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Powerman
[quote]I agree with you.......but what's the point of all the estate tax mumbo jumbo if your goal is lower income tax burdens??? [/quote] Because you need to make up for the lost income revenue somewhere Like I said, the intent was for this to be a revenue neutral idea...

[quote]It was earned by the relative (presumably) who leaves the estate.[/quote] Right. By another person. So it's not earned on individual merit by the person receiving it. [quote]You are stuck on some stupid concept of fairness. Typical bleeding heart. [/quote] Not really I think it wou...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Powerman
What's funny? The analogy is appropriate. Believe me I've met plenty of the "old money" type dead beats in New Orleans. 40 year old "men" who have neither an education nor a job. They're every bit as motivated as a welfare leach. They just happen to be leaching off of their own family instead...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Powerman
[quote] Those aren't mutually exclusive. This should be obvious. [/quote] Correct. But I'd rather defer as much of my taxation as I can until I'm dead and gone. And my descendants will still get most of the estate, just with some tax penalty. And they'll enjoy a life with lower income taxes on...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Powerman
[quote] I couldn't disagree with you more. If I were to build up a multi-million dollar estate, I want my children to benefit from it. [/quote] Right. And you could have built up an even larger estate with lower income taxes. [quote] Your proposal limits the incentive. [/quote] No it do...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Powerman
[quote] maybe you should look into the fact most wealthy people are self made...and most fortunes are gone in under 3 generations. [/quote] So if that's the case why not alleviate some of the income tax burden and transfer it to estate taxes?...

[quote]I'd argue that what's good for America means it's good for the individual. [/quote] Would lower income taxes not be good for the individual? [quote] that money was already taxed. Now you want to tax it again. [/quote] Not a valid point [quote]Good for America, or good for Government reve...
