TAX REFORM: It’s Time to Bury the DEATH TAX – Permanently

Estate taxes are a pressing problem for family-owned farms and ranches. Approximately 90 percent of farm and ranch assets are illiquid assets, such as land, buildings and equipment, which leaves few options when it comes to generating cash to pay an estate tax. A repeal of the death tax will allow the family business to continue without having to sell land, livestock or equipment to pay the taxes. Learn more about Estate Taxes.
