I'm not a fan of Bill Clinton but I'm glad he vetoed the elimination of the Estate Tax bill. Why, because the bill eliminated the step up in the cost basis of inherited properity. This would have had everyone receiving properity from parents (house,stocks, etc) using their parents cost basis which would result in much more taxes (Federal and State) being due when the properity is sold. Be careful what you ask for!
