letter to the editor

David Young is running an ad featuring a farmer from Runnells complaining about Cindy Axne wanting to raise the inheritance (death) tax.

This farmer and everyone else in the 3rd district need to know the facts. The farm can be passed to the spouse with no tax accessed.

The inheritance tax only affects individuals who leave a “taxable” estate of more than $11 million.

In 2013 only 20 farms in the entire country paid the inheritance. tax. Why is David Young so worried about these 20 farms.

Cindy Axne knows that this money can help feed and school poor Iowans. Art Behn, Adel
