Estate Tax Battle Lines Drawn

An article in USA Today provides a detailed coverage of the looming battle over whether to make the estate tax repeal permanent.  See Richard Wolf, Opposing Groups Ready for Estate Tax Fight, USA Today, Aug. 29, 2005, at 6A.

Organizations in favor of repeal are advertising and lobbying intensively in an attempt to influence an upcoming vote in the Senate in early September (the House has already approved the repeal).

Organizations agreeing with the "no taxation without respiration" approach include NoDeathTax.org, Club for Growth, and the Free Enterprise Fund.

Organizations in favor of retaining the death tax include United for a Fair Economy and Americans for a Fair Estate Tax.
