George Will: Eliminate Estate Tax for Economic Recovery

Posted by Brian Garst on August 12, 2011

In the midst of explaining how to fix the economy in an interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose, George Will had this to say about the death tax:

“I would eliminate the death tax. I don’t know why death is a taxable event in this country. No more estate taxes. Eliminate — go back to the classic — no taxation without respiration, that’s right. Go back to the classic Bill Bradley/Ronald Reagan tax reform of 1986. Lower the rates by eliminating loopholes and exceptions.”
