About Estate and Federal Taxes
The U.S. economy is not a force of nature. It is the direct result of policy decisions about what to tax, what not tax, what to regulate, and what not to regulate. United for a Fair Economy recognizes that the federal tax has significantly contributed to the modern surge in economic inequality since the 1980s. Thus, federal tax advocacy has been a core component of our work.
In recent years, no federal tax issue has been more critical than the estate tax. Since 1916, the estate tax has helped protect our economic system from creating an oligarchy; that is, a pervasive concentration of wealth. Our goal is to ensure that the US has a strong estate tax that holds the wealthy accountable for their fair share of our tax responsibility.
