I see advantages, such as encouraging reinvestment into companies and such. I just find the argument is often hard for people to separate from general tax rates, so I hesitate to argue it.In my view that is the solution to a lot of society's problems. Put the super rich's interests in the same bucket as working people.
Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!
"I can explain it to you but, I can't understand it for you"
btw the tax exemption involves the owner of the estate not the heirs. a 15 million dollar estate with three heirs does not get more exemptions than one with 15 million and two heirs as AdamT tried to suggest
its a lie the left invented to serve as a facade to hide the "from each according to their ability" nonsense
if you want to base taxes on what people use than you would have to admit that the millions who pay no income taxes use far more than one millionaire which would destroy that basis for your tax "fairness" nonsense
