Federal Estate Tax

Federal Estate Tax

The federal estate tax is a burden on family businesses. Not only does the tax threaten to close family businesses, it also takes capital away from the business to pay for expensive estate planning.

FY18 Budget Resolution Passes Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Family Business Coalition was pleased to see the passage of the FY18 budget resolution,…

The Family Business Coalition is leading the charge to repeal the federal estate tax and ensure that capital intensive, family-owned businesses aren’t hindered by a complicated and uncertain tax code. The coalition provides me with real time information and intelligence, unmatched by other groups focused on family business tax issues. Every Family Business Coalition meeting agenda is packed with presentations from the best and brightest tax policy experts, both on the Hill and in the private sector. Any organization concerned with small business tax issues should be a member of the Family Business Coalition.

I joined the Family Business Coalition as a member of the advisory board to put HARDI in a leadership position in the movement to repeal the federal estate tax. The Family Business Coalition monthly meetings allow me to speak to top leaders from Capitol Hill about our family business owners’ tax concerns and connect directly with other leaders of small business associations across the country. Our membership in the Family Business Coalition has helped me to lobby Congress on the estate tax more effectively and has kept me well informed on issues in Congress affecting our members.

I depend on the Family Business Coalition for the latest information on tax issues affecting family businesses in Congress. Each month, the Family Business Coalition brings together leaders from Capitol Hill and family business associations to set strategy for repealing the estate tax. The monthly meetings are among the most productive that I’ve attended while handling government affairs for the National Association of Electrical Distributors. Every association representing family businesses should have a seat at the table at the Family Business Coalition.
