Family Business Estate Tax Coalition (FBETC)

The Family Business Estate Tax Coalition (FBETC) is committed to the full and permanent repeal of the estate tax. The Coalition supports the following legislation to permanently repeal the estate tax: S.1108, the Death Tax Repeal Act, sponsored by Sen. John Thune (R-SD). Read more about the FBETC study and letter that repealing stepped-up basis tax provision would hurt small businesses and destroy jobs.
