    if you were the executor, then you should understand that the act of their death was not taxed. why do you keep pushing the false terminology? no such thing as a death tax

    I guess you haven't figured out that calling this abomination the death tax is not the same as saying death is taxed

    rather its the act of death that triggers the tax

    no, it is not....their deaths were not taxed, death does not trigger the tax....it is the passing on of assets, hence, why it is called 'inheritance tax'....only when someone else receives the windfall, be it property or whatever, is there any tax...

    mendacious quibbling of the most dishonest order.

    and you are lying-the tax is imposed before ANYONE receives what the envious call a "windfall"

    breaking out the 'envy' term again, means you know your argument is full of holes......constantly calling it a 'death tax' is very dishonest.

    whining about what term is applied is childish

    and my argument is sound-no one should be taxed or everyone should be taxed the same flat rate

    wrong again-not screwing the winners is not hurting the losers or wannabees.

    "sloths that inhabit country clubs"

    and some claim that ENVY has nothing to do with these posts-or is it spite or jealousy

    Actually, randel, in his explanation of the fallacy of the term death tax, nailed it to the wall.... that among other things.
