The American Family Business Institute applauded Rep. Sue Myrick for her support to permanently repeal the Federal Estate Tax.

Rep. Myrick  and 150 other members of Congress have signed the “Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act” (HR 1259), originally sponsored by Representatives Kevin Brady (R-TX-8) and Mike Ross (D-AR-4).

“Representative Myrick is a champion for death tax repeal,” said AFBI President Dick Patten.  “By supporting legislation that repeals the Federal Estate Tax, she is standing up for family business owners, farmers and entrepreneurs across North Carolina and America.”

Representative Myrick signed AFBI’s “Death Tax Repeal Pledge” during the 2010 election cycle.
