In our last two posts, we discussed the different proposals that Mitt Romney and President Obama have for the estate tax and for investment taxes. We hope this has given you a better understanding of the issues in the upcoming election so that you can make an informed decision about which candidate you want to vote for.
However, we also hope that you do not vote in the election and then forget about estate tax and investment tax issues. You should continue to stay informed because no matter who wins the election, he will still need to get his proposals through Congress before anything goes into effect. Analysts predict that after the election Congress will still be more or less equally divided between the parties. That means that both candidates will have a difficult time passing all of the proposals that they want. You need to stay informed about any post-election changes.
We also want to point out that there are many other issues in this election that could impact your family. Make sure that you inform yourself about them and then get out and vote for your candidate of choice.
