    And all taxes come from someone's wealth
    excise taxes are what you pay when you engage in an activity. not a tax on wealth

    try again

    you didn't have a point-you were wrong when you called it an inheritance tax

    factually inaccurate.

    wealth is an abundance of a resource, in this case.. money.

    those without wealth are still taxed, contrary to your false claim.

    I know that "being right" is more important to you than the subject at hand, so... carry on.

    I know butting in and getting schooled is what happened to you here. an inheritance tax is paid by the heirs and often is based on the income or the amount given to the heirs. i.e. if someone left me 20K I'd pay a lower rate than someone left 2 million in the same will. An estate tax is based on the size of the estate, not how its divvied up (unless some is given to charity and that the taxable amount decreases)

    you should point out taxes on commerce are voluntary....no one uses force on you.. to make you engage in it..

    income tax uses force.
