Taxing the dead

I just heard about this on Adler. Click here if you want funeral services to be exempt from the GST.

Instead of just dealing with funeral services, how's about scrapping estate taxes? Imagine what all the small businesses are going to look in the next 10-20 years when many of the founders pass on and their children have to sell off assets to pay estate taxes. Many of these businesses have everything tied up in assets - there's no cash in the mattress.

Instead of allowing a small businesses to continue being responsible tax payers (on profits - what taxes SHOULD be based upon), many firms will be dealt what may well be a crippling body blow.
