With Timing of Death, Steinbrenner Family Won’t Pay Estate Tax

…cleverly disguised as “reporting”…eh, forget it! Just go straight to the comments ~ they’re GREAT! Like these two, for starters…

So glad the legacy gets to stay in the family for a while!

But shame on the article author for this comment:
“The repeal of the tax is sapping about $55 billion in revenue from the federal government.”

No, it doesn’t “sap” anything… if a successful person pays taxes their whole life, the feds shouldn’t come along and confiscate 45% or even 55% of it when they die!

Let the money stay in private hands, where it can be put to real PRODUCTIVE use.

Totally agree with ZUCCHINMAN. Leave it to some NBC reporter to see all the money a person makes and has already paid taxes on as property of the Feds that they somehow get to keep because of a laps in tax law.

If only NY and the Feds had been able to keep the money to help support important work like $140 Million in condom give aways.

Would that I could argue.

    The MSM of today is but the Soviet-era Pravda reborn anew.

    This whole thing – the fact that the death tax comes back with a wallop next year – disgusts me.

    My dad was joking that if he dies this year, my brother and I would be set for life, but if he keeps on living longer, we’d be outta luck. The fact that someone can even JOKE about that strikes me as a result of governmental sickness.

    They ought to take that R in IRS and change it to an N. It might help the economy AND the backlog for naturalized citizenship and green cards.
