And unlike the estate tax, which many conservatives call a "death tax," this tax is levied directly on surviving spouses, not other heirs.Sorry, but IMHO it's no different than taxes levied on the single folks now. They don't enjoy any marital deductions now and won't after they inherit something, either. Why should a surviving spouse be treated any differently under our tax laws? After all, they are single again even if they were once married. It's not a "death tax" in any sense of the words. It's simply a recognition of one's filing status under our tax laws.Regards ... Pixy (who's as conservative as they come)
