USA Today reports results from a poll the following regarding the estate tax:
•A 56% majority say it is “very important” to pass legislation that would keep the estate tax from increasing significantly next year. The tax, which expired this year, is scheduled to return in January to as high as 55% for estates valued at more than $1 million.
So what do the other 44 percent believe? Would oppose, in other words, want a $1,000,000 exemption? Do not care, however, may be the unfortunate answer.
