When both her parents died, not only were she and her sister dealing with the sudden loss of our parents, they were now faced with a huge estate and income tax burden we weren’t sure we could pay. Eliminating or reducing the estate tax will help ensure the preservation of family farms, and will help the next generation of farmers to be able to concentrate on growing the best crops they can for our country and the world.
