It is no secret that the Republican controlled congress and President Obama are likely to have several high-profile battles in the next two years. That is inevitable whenever there is a split government in Washington.
One issue that might cross the President’s desk is repealing the estate tax as Representative Thornberry of Texas has introduced the Death Tax Repeal Act which seeks to repeal the estate, gift and generation-skipping taxes.
Everything Lubbockin “Thornberry Introduces The Death Tax Repeal Act” reports that the bill already has 36 co-sponsors.
Of course it is too early to predict whether this bill will pass the House of Representatives, let alone make it to President Obama’s desk for his signature or a veto. However, it is never too early to let your opinions be known on this bill.
Whether you are in favor of it or opposed, now would be a good time to let your congressman or congresswoman known what you think about this important and controversial issue.

I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.
The very best elder law attorney and staff anyone could ever ask for! I have referred a number of clients to Cindy and she never disappoints. She is kind, caring, and extremely thorough in making sure everything is completed as it should be. I highly recommend Cindy for anyone needing lawyer services; she truly goes above and beyond for every client she helps and has had a huge impact in so many peoples’ lives. Thank you, Cindy and staff, for everything that you do- I’m so glad to know you!
Cindy and the Nelson Elder Care Law team are trustworthy and helpful. They are the experts in elder care law. At Leaf Cremation, we entrust our families to the care of the Nelson team when their services are needed.
Josh Nelson, and his staff, have been amazingly helpful to our family. The ins and outs of nursing homes, the rules and regulations that govern Medicare and Medicaid are daunting and the folks at Nelson Elder Care Law have been informative, responsive, and above all, empathetic. I cannot emphasize enough how their service has taken a weight off of our shoulders especially during a world pandemic that has targeted nursing homes across our country. I highly recommend retaining Josh and his firm!
I had a simple legal question to them that I needed answered and they very helpful in giving me the information I needed. I highly recommend them and will reach out to them if I need more advice or assistance. Thank you for taking your time to just answer a couple of questions I had!
