Hello AMAC Member,
ACTION ALERT: On Thursday, April 16, 2015, the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting to repeal the death tax permanently. As a strong supporter of H.R. 1105, the “Death Tax Repeal Act of 2015,” AMAC needs your help to ensure this bill is passed!
Death should not be a taxable event. Grieving families should not be forced to pay a tax on their loved one’s life savings, which were already taxed when the income was originally earned.
The death tax imposes substantial costs on small businesses and hard-working Americans. The death tax is responsible for closing the doors of many family farms and ranches and is the reason that more than 70 percent of family-owned businesses do not survive to the second generation.
Repealing the death tax will lead to increased economic activity and federal revenue. When owners are given the chance to reinvest in their businesses and hire more workers, the economy, the government, and the American people stand to benefit in the long run.
One thing is clear: Americans deserve better.
Please lend your voice to this significant debate by sending an email and/or calling your Representative. Tell your Congressman to stop government overreach by voting to repeal the death tax once and for all!
