While the Republicans in Washington, D.C., are closing in on reconciling the House and Senate versions of their tax code overhaul, it appears that the death tax is going to live on.
Bear in mind that the deceased already paid tax on that money once before; when it was earned. I personally don’t believe in taxation without respiration. But then again, I don’t believe in a great number of things that our elected officials have enabled our federal, state, and local governments to do in regards to taxation. The problem’s with our tax code are almost too numerous to count, and our politicians derive power from being the brokers of other people’s money.
I am a candidate for state legislature in the southern half of the Bitterroot valley. I feel that the proper role of government is quite limited, and that a responsible government seeks to fulfill its essential roles while leaving as much money as possible where it belongs – in your pocket.
I want Montanan’s to enjoy the lowest per capita tax rate of any people in the country. According to the most recent report from the Tax Foundation (2012), Montana isn’t even in the top ten. I want a government that is limited to protecting individual rights. No double taxation, and no taxation without respiration. Let’s make Montana the freest state.
– Scott Roy McLean, Candidate, Senate District 43
