Making headlines

Tax blogger Robert Flach recently mentioned the long-running television series Law & Order. The other day, I heard about a recent episode ("The Taxman Cometh") where the motive turned out to be timing a person's death to avoid the estate tax. (They may have gotten the idea from the Colbert Report.)

Maybe if the estate tax keeps making headlines, it will actually get addressed by Congress. Just maybe...

  1. History shows over and over that it is a bad idea to let the rich and powerful get too rich and too powerful.

    I'm all for the estate tax.
