Because the “fiscal cliff” will not stop for death, it looks as if death’s carriage may make a “kindly” stop to pick up some American millionaires this year, to paraphrase Emily Dickinson.
In 2010, after a year in which the estate tax was zeroed out altogether, Congress passed a law that set the estate tax at 35 percent and exempted all estates under $5 million, adjusted for inflation. That law expires in January [...]

Here’s the problem detail: I live in Hamilton County Indiana where there is a lot of flat farmland. In our county, land sells for $10,000 per acre and there are many parcels of 10 to 20 acres available. I can’t move out of Hamilton County because we own a small business.

It is not the government’s job to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was designed [...]
