Walberg: Protect Michigan Families, Repeal Unfair Death Tax


Press release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) released the following statement after voting to repeal the death tax. In a letter to Congress, 81 organizations in the Family Business Coalition write that this “legislation will help America’s family businesses create jobs, expand operations, and grow the economy.”

“Of all the countless unfair provisions in the tax code, the death tax ranks near the top. Family farms and small businesses should not be forced to pay the tax man at the same time they are mourning a loved one, for savings that have already been taxed once, if not twice. Repealing the death tax is the right thing to do for job creation, our economy, and all the hard-working families who pass down greater opportunity to the next generation,” said Walberg.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.

    Most people will say that they disagree with estate taxes– until the amount inherited is over $1m. People who inherit large amounts of money have to pay their fair share. I disagree with representative Walberg’s vote.
