Call it what you want to call it – but any time the estate tax, also known as the death tax, comes up in conversation, ears perk up and most in agriculture start paying attention. Well, in the past few days, the topic has started simmering again.

First, U.S. Representative Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who has been one of the strongest voices on Capitol Hill advocating for full repeal of the estate tax over the years, was able to top 218-cosponsors on his Death Tax Repeal Act (H.R. 2429). Reaching 218 cosponsors means more than half of the House of Representatives is in board with a full repeal.
This news caused the American Farm Bureau Federation to say now’s the time to act.
