HOUSE JOINT MEMORIAL NO. 11
BY REVENUE AND TAXATION COMMITTEE
1 A JOINT MEMORIAL
2 TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES IN CONGRESS
3 ASSEMBLED, AND TO THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION REPRESENTING THE STATE OF
4 IDAHO IN THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES.
5 We, your Memorialists, the House of Representatives and the Senate of the
6 State of Idaho assembled in the Second Regular Session of the Fifty-sixth
7 Idaho Legislature, do hereby respectfully represent that:
8 WHEREAS, under tax relief legislation passed in 2001, the death tax was
9 temporarily phased out, not permanently eliminated; and
10 WHEREAS, women and minorities are very often owners of small and medium-
11 sized businesses, and the death tax prevents their children from reaping the
12 rewards of a lifetime spent trying to make a better life; and
13 WHEREAS, farmers will face losing their farms if the federal government
14 resumes the heavy taxation of the estates of people who invested most of their
15 earnings back into their farms; and
16 WHEREAS, if the estate tax had been repealed in 1996, over the next nine
17 years the United States economy would have averaged as much as $11 billion per
18 year in extra output, and an average of 145,000 additional new jobs would have
19 been created; and
20 WHEREAS, the persistent uncertainty created by the sunset provision pre-
21 vents families and small businesses from taking advantage of the repeal; and
22 WHEREAS, having passed both the United States House of Representatives and
23 the United States Senate, the elimination of the death tax has proven to hold
24 wide bipartisan support.
25 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
26 sion of the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature, the House of Representatives and
27 the Senate concurring therein, that we urge the members of the Congress of the
28 United States representing the state of Idaho to support, work to pass and
29 vote for the permanent repeal of the death tax.
30 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the House of Representa-
31 tives be, and she is hereby authorized and directed to forward a copy of this
32 Memorial to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Repre-
33 sentatives of Congress, and the congressional delegation representing the
34 State of Idaho in the Congress of the United States.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this memorial is to urge Congress to work to pass
and vote for the permanent repeal of the death tax.
Name: Representative Dolores Crow
