Perish the thought for attorneys who make their livings helping clients avoid estate taxation.
That said, the safe money is on continuation of an estate tax, especially as government debt load continues to climb and successive congresses seem powerless to stop it.
At the vanguard of abolishing the estate tax, however, is Dick Patten of the American Family Business Institute. Reuters recently ran a story reporting that 131 members of Congress have signed his pledge to vote to repeal the so-called "death tax," and a bill currently before the House to do the same has 168 co-sponsors.
