Job One in Washington for Cattlemen is Estate Tax Deal
Thu, 19 Jan 2012 07:29:45 CST
While the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention is still a couple of weeks away, the top NCBA priority for this year is expected to be estate tax reform.
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes with Kent Bacus of the NCBA on the Need for a Death tax Deal
According to NCBA Manager of Legislative Affairs Kent Bacus, the estate tax, commonly referred to as the death tax, is one of the leading causes of the breakup of multi-generation family farms and ranches. In December 2010, Congress passed temporary estate tax relief effective through Dec. 31, 2012. For now, estates worth more than $5 million per individual or $10 million per couple are taxed at a 35 percent rate.
Bacus says that movement on this issue is imperative- that reverting to a million dollar exemption is simply not an option. Getting Congressional action during this contentious Prsidential election year will be difficult, but Bacus says that NCBA is hopeful that with a lot of grass roots involvement, a deal can be done.
NCBA supports the Death Tax Permanency Repeal Act, introduced by Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas). Bacus says if a full repeal is not possible, the next best option is to make the 2010 package permanent.
