TFP Column: Once Bitten, Twice Taxed

Like many of us around the country this week, my attention has been on the negotiations surround turning the "Bush Tax Cuts" into the "Obama Tax Rates". 

I wasn't so much concerned over whether something would be passed, as both parties seemed resigned to it. I was focusing some attention on the resumption of the Estate Tax as part of the process however, because so few seem to be noticing this little gem's inclusion. 

The result of this focus became "Once Bitten, Twice Taxed" about the second bite of the income apple that government wants to once again take when you assume room temperature. 

Of course there's a great deal more insight and information to be had from the electronic edition of Toledo's largest Sunday circulation newspaper. So if you can tear yourself away from the rampant consumerism of Christmas shopping this week, you should take a little time to catch up on what's going on in Northwest Ohio.
