I have not had to sell assets yet but as it stands upon the death of my father, because of the value of the
farm land now, my sisters and I will have to either sell some of the land or clear cut timber to pay for the
It is just a small farm and only about 1 00 cows. The income is probably no more than $30,000 dollars a year. But when my father dies, only because of the farm land value, we will have to sell part of the farm which my Dad has worked so hard to preserve.
Even if they just raised the estate value to Five million dollars it would help us be able to keep the farm. It is very disheartening to have this situation hanging over our heads knowing our father will not live much longer. I do hope you will change this very unfair tax on the dead and the living.
